Assess the Excess

Lenten Challenge

Where is there excess in your life?

Traditionally, Lent is a time for simplicity. It is a time to take an inventory of your life. Where is there excess in your life? Is this excess taking you away from the one thing that matters the most, to be a son/daughter of Christ?

Today’s challenge: Walk around your house with a bag and fill it with things you can donate to the needy. Some ideas: a sweater you no longer wear, an extra pair of socks, books that haven’t been cracked open in awhile, extra food items to the local shelter.
