Daily Discipline in Lent: Week One


Simplify – Discover – Give – Yourself to the World

Just as Jesus withdrew into the desert for 40 days, in Lent we ‘make’ a desert to withdraw to. Jesus gave up food, and trusted the Word of God alone. We are not Jesus, but we can fast from 1 meal a day or 1 meal a week, or just eat more simply. Use that time spent in fasting or in simplicity to turn to the Truth of God in Scripture, Nature, or Music. Let your mind dream in that little desert. Take with you back into your world a thought that you discover. Share it somehow.
