g(O)dd Topic: Giving up time for Lent | Ep 34


In this episode, I’m going it alone for another g(O)dd episode. But not to worry, it isn’t me talking about something for 40 minutes. Nope. It’s me talking for 20 minutes. And what is it that I’m talking about? It’s Lent.

I’ve never participated in Lent. I’m not an expert in Lent. I’m probably not even qualified to speak on the subject. But I’m going to. But, I’m not going to talk about the history of it or whether we should participate or not. Mostly I love the tradition connected to it and the heart behind it.

What Does an Expert Say?

Since I’m not an expert, I try to listen to people who are. Back in January I was listening to an interview on the Phil Vischer Podcast with Aaron Damiani. During that interview Damiani said, “During Lent, most people ask what they should give up, but that’s the wrong question. A better question is, what does God want to say to me during this time?”

In this episode I share my┬áinsight on Proverbs 22:6 and how Jesus fulfills the promise of training up our children. I also share what I’m giving up for Lent and why.

What does God want to say to you during Lent?
