Title : 2/17
passage : Joel 2:12-18.
passagePhrase : Even now, says our God, return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, and weeping, and mourning; Rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to your God. For gracious and merciful is God, slow to anger, rich in kindness, and relenting in punishment. Perhaps God will again relent and leave behind a blessing.

No one loves to focus on what they’ve done wrong. Yet everyone makes mistakes—small and large. In education, faculty cast a critical eye on the work of students and point out errors not to shame or sadden students, but to help the student acknowledge the error, learn from it and correct it in the future. Without that acknowledgement, students are doomed to make the same errors repeatedly. We’re all students of life, students of God. On Ash Wednesday, taking time to consider our errors, to ask forgiveness and to learn from them can lead to a stronger walk with God, a stronger faith and a stronger community. The shame of error lies in pretending error doesn’t exist. Great students admit error. And no surprise, admitting error is the best way to move on and improve, both in academia, in our community and in our personal faith walk.
