WHAT SHOULD I GIVE UP FOR LENT?

0

Instead of giving up something for Lent, I have started to do something different to make myself a better person last couple years. Examples– having more patience, try to ease up on my OCDs so not so up-tight about them (very hard), pray for other that I know are in need of guidance.

You could give up impatience and intolerance for lent. For these few days, put up with the sort of people you are quick to take a swipe at/to judge. It’ll be much easier to continue this way the rest of the year. You’ll grow calmer and more accepting by degrees.

Giving up something on Lent is supposed to be about sacrifice, therefore you should give up something that you do everyday that IS NOT necessary for your life. Examples would include… soda coffee television cookies/candy/etc. smoking alcohol The idea is that for whatever you give up, you replace that time with prayer and thanksgiving. So, if you give up.. sodas let’s say.. Everytime you think about having a soda, you’ll spend the time you would have drinking it praying. Hope I helped.

Giving up is a phrase associated with the season of Lent. What will I give up this year? Let me think about it. Usually thoughts turn to something a person really likes very much, maybe a delicious desert. No more ice cream. No candy until Easter. Good-bye, cake. All of this is a way of omitting foods truly relished and maybe also subtracting weight someone is eager to see disappear. More importantly, in the sacrifice of food readily available to us, our thoughts turn to the hungry of the world, desperate for any morsel. They have no choice in what to eat, because too often, famished as they are, there is nothing to reach for. The reason for giving up is not just to deprive myself of some particular satisfaction. The real intention is to focus on the One Who took on Himself the burden of our human nature, not clinging to His divinity as something to be held onto. At the same time we see how looking at Jesus means also fixing our gaze on others who have our common humanity. Sharing our

Lent is a time in your life in which you give up something valued by you. It doesn’t have to be a item it could be a word like cussing or a favorite tv show. If you are a sport’s man give up a sport you like. A drinker give up beer. It really depends on your lifestyle and how you take on lent to what you give up for God.
