Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras/Pancake Day

2 Surely I am too stupid to be human;
I do not have human understanding.
3 I have not learned wisdom,
nor have I knowledge of the holy ones.

Proverbs 30:1-33

How often have we felt the same way Agur the Oracle felt? After a bad grade? A failed job interview? Another ghosted date?

Immediately following the passage from the book of Proverbs in today’s office are an important reminder:

Surely, it is God who saves me; *
I will trust in him and not be afraid.

For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure defense, *
and he will be my Savior.

Despite all our human limitations, God is there for us.

Happy Mardi Gras, y’all!
