Since my Lenten series is about "giving up the yoke of you." That is, giving up defining your spiritual life by what you, yourself (and mostly all by yourself) can do, I thought I'd share a joke and quote about this topic...
First the joke.
Question: How many narcissists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Answer: Just one. He holds the bulb while the world revolves around him.
Now the quote. (Eugene Peterson again, from the same CT article, March 2005):
"One way to define the spiritual life is getting so tired and fed up with yourself that you go on to something better, which is following Jesus."
