The Ides of March

Beware of the Ides of March (from Julius Caesar)

Those simple words refer merely to the middle of the month. But we hear them as a prophetic warning in Shakespeare’s play. They were a warning about potential political danger. People can be pretty superstitious about fictional warnings or common life experiences like Friday the 13th which happens every few months. Better to trust in the real and true.

Jesus shouted to the crowds, “If you trust me, you are trusting not only me, but also God who sent me (John 12:44)
