Give Up Envy for Lent
King George wanted his duck, and David wanted Bathsheba. We want so many things we can not have. Lent is a time for us to see all the good things we do have. We were given something so many years ago that makes everything else pale in comparison We were given freedom from sin. We were given the chance to be the people God always wanted us to be, through Christ's death and Resurrection Many times we do not show the proper appreciation for that gift. We need to change that.
