Take time to prayerfully consider your plans for Lent. Need ideas? #practicemakespresent
1. Choose to make water your only beverage for 40 days to help Blood:Water Mission provide clean water for people in Africa who don't have a choice. Check out Forty Days of Water for more info. 2. Traditionally, Christians abstained from eating meat during Lent, so consider joining millions of fellow Christ-followers around the world in this fast. 3. Give up eating out for 40 days and donate the money you save to The Christian Women’s Job Corp in Nashville . My sister works full-time for this organization, so I can personally vouch for the fact that the money will be used wisely and lovingly! 4. Do a 40-day purge of all your excess stuff and donate the best of it to Goodwill or a local thrift store that benefits your neighbors. 5. Unplug—TV, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, etc. This is perhaps the single best way to carve out some extra time in your day for prayer and meditation.
