Some Other Things To Do For Lent
Begin reflecting on your life and commit to praying daily. Perhaps buy a journal and a pen that you use specifically for following a Lent reading plan and use it to write down your thoughts and prayers as you meditate upon the Bible every day.
Consider volunteering one day a week if you don’t already. Sacrifice is a central theme during Lent, and one of the ways we can walk closely with Jesus is to give of our time.
Be generous. Perhaps you can listen out for someone who may be struggling financially. Look for an opportunity to share some of your money. Do it anonymously, not for the credit and praise of being generous, but simply for the sake of being unselfish. You could also give to charity but push yourself to get more personal. Perhaps buy a grocery gift card, slip it into someone’s bag, or post it through the letterbox.
Detox negative habits and traits. Pray daily for greater humility and self-discipline, and look for ways to reshape your character to be more like Jesus.
