Lenten Weekend Wisdom: Just As He Planned

The redemptive story confronts us with the fact that God is not like us. He saw our need, he planned how to meet that need, and everything happened just as he planned.

Lenten Weekend Wisdom: Confession

Lent is about more than giving up chocolate, coffee, or chocolate coffee. But we humans make Lent more about sacrificing material things. Giving up something for Lent is always hard because I was not raise to give something up. In our church our focus was on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter.

The only sacrifice I remember was giving up some time on Good Friday to go to church and pray in 30 minute slots from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Sacrifice your words as you confess during Lent.

No sacrifice is more pleasing to your Lord than the sacrifice of words in the form of humble, honest, heartfelt confession.

Lenten Wisdom: Changes

And at the heart of that change is a conscience that has been cleansed by the transforming grace of the blood of Jesus.

Today look back on the past week and see if your behavior was a reflection of the cross changing you. Do you have a clear conscience? Did you avoid sin? If not, did you repent? How will your behavior next week be different?

As for me, I will attempt to be less frustrated with my customers and focus solely on soulutions to their problems.
