Today is the infamous Fat Tuesday. It's the day right before Ash Wednesday which is the start of Lent Season. Now, I know that all of you probably know that, but I was just thinking about how the Catholics have a tradition of giving something up for Lent.
Are you planning on giving anything up for Lent? Not as a demand or requirement for God's love, but as a reflection of God and refocusing attention on Christ. It can be anything simple- gum, magazines, diet soda, chocolate, reality TV, anything.
In Bible study yesterday, we talked about making Jesus our number 1 priority. With giving something up and refocusing attention on Christ, I think it'll be a good reminder of Christ's work and His love for us.
