These suggestions may help for the first week in Lent: The purple ones are very practical for my life.
First Week: SIMPLIFYING THE USE OF MONEY
Monday: Make a meal from stored or forgotten items [become more aware of overlooked blessings]
Tuesday: Avoid looking at advertisements today [pray for insight into susceptibility to constant advertising]
Wednesday: Today, walk to the store, instead of driving [turn a daily chore into an occasion of thanksgiving]
Thursday: Cut up one credit card [step back from a false sense of security and rely on God’s care]
Friday: Create a budget [pray for clarity about ways we might be intemperate and stressed]
Saturday: Give to a charity [giving might be in time, talent, treasure]
We are having a Lenten day of retreat. I will share it next week.
