Practicing Lent won’t make you more popular.
Fasting won’t improve your looks.
Praying more won’t solve your money troubles.
Your friends may not quite understand what Lent means. Lent will be misunderstood, and so will you.
Giving alms doesn’t make you “a better person.” Giving alms is simply an instruction from Christ.
The ways you practice Lent are often invisible to others. In a world where everyone and everything is screaming for our attention, invisible actions can’t be captured in magazine-ready images and published broadly on the internet. Do them anyway.
The goal of Lent is personal transformation through Christ.
Our world hates Christ, and will hate you for loving Him.
Love Him anyway.
