Lenten reflection

This is a little late for this year, but a member of my church family shared this Lenten reflection with me last week and I thought it was worth passing along.

Give up complaining – Focus on gratitude

Give up on judgments – Think kind thoughts

Give up on discouragement – Be hopeful

Give up on bitterness – Turn to forgiveness

Give up anger – Return good for evil

Give up gossiping – Control your tongue

Give up pessimism – Be optimistic

Give up gloom – Enjoy the beauty around you

Give up jealousy – Pray for trust

Give up worry – Trust Divine Providence

Give up giving up – Hang in there!
