Lenten Reflection – What to give up

on February 18, 2013

“Give up complaining——focus on gratitude.

Give up pessimism——become an optimist.

Give up harsh judgments——think kindly thoughts.

Give up worry——trust Divine Providence.

Give up discouragement——be full of hope.

Give up bitterness——turn to forgiveness.

Give up hatred——return good for evil.

Give up negativism——be positive.

Give up anger——be more patient.

Give up pettiness——become mature.

Give up gloom——enjoy the beauty that is all around you.

Give up jealousy——pray for trust.

Give up gossiping——control your tongue.

Give up sin——turn to virtue.

Give up giving up——hang in there!”

Father,

We are sinners who are weak. Through this Lenten season, we pray that we may stay focused and give up any bad habits. You are our ultimate strength; please teach us how to resist the temptations of the flesh. Help us follow your will in all that we think, do, and say. Amen.
