Lent Reflection – Do I use others’ pain to justify my beliefs?

Today is the 19th day of Lent. I’m reading Brian Zahnd’s Lent devotional, The Unvarnished Jesus. I journal on the scripture he’s selected and his reflection, then I post daily (or near-daily) meditations that emerge from this. Today we read Luke 13:1-5, a strange little interaction where Jesus talks about tragedy and repentance.
