A stiff neck is one that refuses to move, even when there is cause for it. This is how the sages described a person who was rebuked many times for engaging in destructive behavior, yet never changed. Perhaps some of your friends have been pointing out a need in your own life for a change. Perhaps you are hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit prompting you to do so. Listen! Turn before it is too late. A neck broken beyond healing is death.
LORD, forgive us for our stubbornness. Help us o change.
