Lenten Meditation – Feb. 26, 2009

Thursday, February 26

 

 

After Jesus’ baptism he spent time in the wilderness trying to discern what it meant for him to be the Son of God.  His time in the wilderness is the basis for our season of Lent.

 

For us Lent should be a time for gaining a better understanding of what it means to be a child of God.  What attitudes should we develop?  How should we behave?  How can we be more effective in spreading God’s love in the world?  What changes do we need to make in the way that we think and act?  Anything that we can do to help us focus on these issues is a valid Lenten Discipline.

 

Lent is not about temporarily “sacrificing” something that we enjoy or doing something that we dislike.  It is about making permanent changes that help us to be better children of God.
