Love from the Ashes & Dust
Lent is not about accomplishing things just for the sake of accomplishment. Lent is not about proving anything to anyone . . . not even to yourself, not even to God. Lent is not even about improving yourself or becoming holy, because the hard truth is you can’t. You, my friends, cannot make yourselves holy; only God can do that.
What, then, is Lent about? Lent is about the story of God’s love.
