Ash Wednesday worthiness
It’s not just about your imperfectness
Ash Wednesday isn’t just a day to smear you in ashes to remind you that you’re imperfect and that you fail sometimes. It’s also a day to remind yourself that God sees the good stuff, the little stuff you do for others, for your family, for your friends, for strangers. God wants you to dust off the ashes (even the ashes other people throw on you), the ashes of your imperfect self, and realize that under the ash, you’re still worthy of dignity, worthy of pride, worthy of respect, worthy of endless mercy. You are worthy.
