In our unredeemed human nature,
every virtue contains its opposite defect.
The danger of becoming proud of one's humility
or allowing our search for perfection
to mask the arrogance we secretly nurture towards the 'sinner'
is something every sincere seeker is familiar with.

Even as the Law was being engraved in tablets of stone
and Moses experienced a theophany on Mount Sinai,
the Israelites' hearts were being turned into stone
as they forgot the wonders of the LORD
and began worshipping the golden calf.
The sacred had been permeated by the profane,
and Israel would have to learn how to deal with its profanity.
