Lent is finally here, along with the inevitable question: “What are you giving up for Lent?”
Whether you choose to give up social media or plan to pray or journal more, the hardest part can be making it through the entire 40-day period.
Lent is a season of fasting, penance and abstinence. The 40-day sacrifice, which ends on Easter Sunday, represents the time that Jesus fasted for “forty days and forty nights” in the wilderness, according to Matthew 4:2. To reflect Jesus’ struggles, people can choose to pray more and give up something they desire for 40 days.
