The second question to ponder this week is from a blog by Rachel Held Evans:
“What are some things in my life that I tell myself I need but I don’t? Can I give one or two of them up for 40 days?”
My husband and I are trying to sort out our needs versus our wants in our budget. This is our Lenten challenge. Our wants seem so necessary, yet we have to put them in perspective. Our God wants the best part of us and so often we give God the last part. The idea behind “giving something up for Lent” is to give it up so you can spend more time with God.
