Ash Wednesday • Lent is about realizing we don’t need stuff as much as we think. But we can do more than just give something up. When we offer it up we are saying, “I’m doing this for You, God. I love you more than sweets.” Our sacrifice can be a gift of love to the God who loves us.

Point to Ponder: Pray with a crucifix this Lent. What do you see?
Point to Discuss: Share with someone what you are giving up this Lent. Talk to them about what it means to “offer it up” to God instead of just giving it up.
