What to do...

For Lent, most people give something up, but there are classic what not to do's:

1. Instead of giving something hard like candy, give up something easy, like vegetables or liver and onions.

2. Don't fast, but instead, eat faster.

3. Instead of getting up early to do a devotion, devote your mornings to extra sleep.

4. Helping others is over-rated, you will help them ore by letting them do it themselves.

All of these things are wrong, backwards. God wants us to devote ourselves to Him and what He wants us to do, not our own selfish game. This season of Lent, I challenge you to dig down inside and examine yourselves and your life and see where you are failing to meet the standards which God has set for you. Find where you can improve, and then take away whatever is preventing you from getting there. Make this your personal goal, and you will improve you Spiritual walk and your life.
