Sometimes it feels awesome to sit in our own wickedness, doesn’t it? Our culture even celebrates it. The wittiest jab at another gets rewarded with laughter and praise; “ghosting” people has become an acceptable means to “address” uncomfortable situations; sitting in our own righteous anger becomes 9 a pastime as we replay for others how we shot the cleverest comeback; we even rehearse imaginary conflicts that haven’t actually happened just to hear our wickedness preside! It’s exhausting. Ezekiel reminds us that we do not have to live like this. Despite the momentary high that “wickedness” brings, it is not sustainable nor lasting in joy. God provides a consistent soft place to land for us, even in our hardest moments. While wicked tendencies might look tempting, we are called to choose kindness, understanding, curiosity, and love. I hear it – it sounds very “kumbaya” and I hear my own snarky (wicked?) voice sneering at those fluffy words. And still, I know that in practice, choosing a soft landing feels healthier, cozier, and closer to God for me.
