Last December, I was having coffee with my friend and colleague, Kelly Wahlquist.

It was a few weeks before Christmas and we found ourselves talking about our favorite holiday movies.  We both agreed that the Grinch who Stole Christmas, the animated version, was among our top ten.

“Kelly, do you remember the part when his heart grows three times its size?” I said. We both started laughing as we recalled the X-ray machine that reflected the Grinch’s momentous conversion.

This Lent, imagine God placing an X-ray over your heart. What would it reflect? Bitterness? Joy? Anger? Love?
