We are now in the Lent season. While not all faiths practice this tradition, most people think it has something to do with “giving up something”. That is partially true. Lent is the 40 days preceding the death of Christ. It is a time of reflecting on His life, sacrifice, and what He gave up to redeem us by His death on the cross. Many people deny themselves some pleasure to identify with His suffering, like sweets, or TV. But how about considering these things to “give up”?

Give up complaining, focus on gratitude

Give up pessimism, become optimistic

Give up harsh judgments, think kind thoughts.

Give up worry, trust God

Give up discouragement, have hope.

Give up bitterness, learn to forgive.

Give up negativism, be positive.

Give up anger, be more patient.

Give up pettiness, become mature.

Give up gloom, enjoy beauty around you

Give up jealousy, pray for contentment

Give up gossiping, control your tongue.

Give up sin, turn to virtue.

Give up giving up – hang in there!
