I don’t want to give up chocolate. I want to give up sin.
I’ve always equated giving up things with identifying to Christ’s sacrifice—like forgoing facebook or television can hold a candle to the Cross! I think it’s safe to say that, for years, I’ve been misinterpreting the fundamental point of Lent. This year, I’m withdrawing from things that stem from honest-to-goodness distrust that the Lord alone is good enough. And that goes beyond a desire to withhold things from myself. That’s sin.
