As we begin Lent again, we look at what God might be calling us to. What gift does God have in mind for us, what does God want us to give up or increase, and what are we to be more mindful of?
I like to choose one area in which I wish to work and do a specific thing each week. I frequently get so busy that I forget about other people. So Lent is a time for me to choose six people and do six different things with them.
It is the time together that matters. If I do not spend time with them, I lose track of what is happening in their lives and what an impact they are having in others’ lives. If I really listen to the other person, I am impressed by all that they are doing for others.
So if you are a little late in deciding what you are going to do this Lent, choose to spend time with a few friends and be impressed by what they are doing.
