When I was in grade school and high school, I vividly remember thinking hard about what I wanted to give up for Lent. It could be chocolate, television, soda pop or, one most memorable year, sarcasm (that was an awfully quiet Lent). I would focus on making my sacrifice real and difficult as a tiny representation of Jesus’ sacrifice for all of us. I would consider how that sacrifice was helping me become a better version of myself and, hopefully, making the world a better place in some small way.
