Jesus’s injunction is to place our trust wholeheartedly in life in all its fullness, rather than in the pomp and pageantry of Solomon. But we find it very inconvenient to walk this path, for along the way we find over and over again that we fall flat on our faces. Yet this falling isn’t an obstacle. It humbles us and opens our heart. We’d all look ridiculous in the emperor’s new clothes but, thank God, that’s how God sees us in all our glorious humanity.
