Give up something bad for Lent

Many times when we give up something for lent it is good thing. We give up going out, sweets, or other indulgences. These may be worthy sacrifices, but do we give up bad things. Let us try giving up things like apathy, discouragement, and bitterness. Jesus tells us in the Gospel of Mark that if there is something bad in your life we need to pluck it out. Lent is time for us to start doing that, and to not stop doing that until all the bad is plucked out of our lives.
In this season of Lent take personal inventory of your strengths, weaknesses, and habits. Look deep inside to see what is holding you back from a better relationship with God and with others.Take the first steps in giving up something bad for Lent.
