What to give up for Lent
Lent is a season of forty days (except Sundays) before Easter. It is a time that many Christians observe as an opportunity for soul-searching and repentance.
Anyway, my friend was telling me that he and his wife considered chocolate, meat, movies, and a few other items as possible candidates to sacrifice for Lent.
Then they decided together, “Let’s give up our sins.”
That’s one of the shortest and best descriptions of what Lent is all about that you could find.
