Third Sunday of Lent

When to be a quitter
In playground rhetoric, a quitter is among the worst things to be. Even in adulthood, none of us wishes to cultivate a reputation for not following through on projects and promises. But sometimes it’s good to quit, as any nicotine addict, alcoholic, or gambler will attest. How do we judge “when to hold ‘em, and when to fold ‘em”? Jesus promotes fruitfulness as the most reliable measure of an effort’s viability. Holding on to a fruitless situation that does not respond to herculean efforts toward cultivation is a waste of life’s soil. Contemplate what to preserve and what to prune.
