How can we better prepare for Lent?
Many people think of Lent as merely a time to “give up something.” They make some small sacrifice for 40 days and then, once Easter arrives, return to previous habits. Lent is meant to be a season that leads us to a deeper conversion of our hearts, a closer relationship with our Heavenly Father.
Instead of a spur-of-the-moment decision, try to set aside some time for prayer and calmly and deeply look at your life. This prayer time might give you an idea of where you should focus your energy. Then, give yourself a concrete goal during Lent, something that will help you battle these particular sins. Give yourself a reasonable goal, something that you can continue to devote time to after Easter.
A Lenten plan could include efforts to share the faith more at your workplace. The habits you develop in these 40 days can continue to serve others all year round.
Blessings in Christ,
