The liturgical season of Lent began last week with Ash Wednesday, which means that it’s time for another round of Byte-Sized Virtue episodes…the fourth season, if you will, of these periodic reflections from Withstand the Fury Dragon and, at times, others.
Firstly: if you want to understand the title of this episode, you’ll need to give a listen to Crooked Soul by Ike Ndolo.
But…why? Well: it’s all well and good to talk about virtue, and we will probably do a fair bit of that over the next few weeks. But, what is virtue? Well, one definition is that virtue is the interior disposition to do what is good. As a definition, that works pretty well, and we probably all know people who fit it handily, people who just seem naturally ordered toward — inclined, if you will — to do what is good at every turn.
But what about those of us who struggle with that?
