What To Give Up For Lent??

He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.--Micah 6:8

This is one of my favorite verses.  If I am in doubt as to how to respond to a situation, I can plug into this verse to evaluate the choices ahead of me.  As you contemplate something to "give up" for Lent this year, consider the graphic below. Often we focus exclusively on physical things during Lent (no dessert, exercise etc.) and forget that it's our Emotional and Spiritual Self is just as much a part of us as our physical bodies.
