In Light of Lent

Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten Season. A time of fasting and prayer in preparation for Easter, Lent is also a call to self-denial because this life was only lent to us. Our time here on earth is but a blink of an eye in eternity yet it matters greatly what we do with the time and life that is given to us. In the sermon this evening at church, everyone was reminded that we must die every single day and live every single day. And how is that? Philippians 1:21 answers us: "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain."

May we reflect on and do wholeheartedly the more important things in life this Lent.
