“Freely you have received; freely give.”
Matthew 10: 8
I’ve been thinking about Lent for the past few weeks, and what I should abstain from this year. In the past I’ve given up alcohol, chocolate, sweets and social media. I have a sense that God want’s me to do something a bit different this year, so I’ve signed up to 40acts. If you haven’t heard of it before, here’s a little taster of what it’s all about:
It’s day 1, and the first challenge is to make 2 lists. The first is to list everything that is holding me back, and then rip it up!
What is holding me back?
Lack of time, busyness Tiredness Fear Lack of courage
And secondly make a list of:
What do I have to give?
- Time, even if it is a small amount
- Listening ear
- Encouraging words
So this is me, holding myself accountable for the next 39 days. Do Lent generously.
