“How much are you willing to give up in order to receive?” We are often asked to give something up for Lent, and while we take time to think of what sacrifice we will make, we often don’t think of what we gain instead. When we give something up, we make room for something else. And if we are willing, we can receive God’s love and mercy.
. . .
After taking a moment to breathe to connect with God and the Universe, place both hands in front of you, as if ready to receive a present. This is a simple gesture of giving and receiving. If we give God our burdens, our flaws, and our sins, in return, we can receive God’s love and the unique gift that is our life. But how much are you willing to give up in order to receive?
