How easy it is to forget we are dust.
How easy it is, with warm bodies, full stomachs, and money in the bank to forget we are dust.
How easy it is to mindlessly nod along as the pastor exhorts us to remember our position were it not for Christ’s intercession.
How easy it is to go through the motions of acknowledging sin and accepting grace without actually doing so.
If it is difficult to remember we are dust, and to dust we shall return, then it becomes exponentially more difficult when, after the sign of the cross is brushed onto foreheads in ashes and oil, we are told to turn from sin and be faithful to Jesus.
