Lent Reflection: March 24th

“For it is love that I desire, not sacrifice, and knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.” --Hosea 6:6

As I give up things this Lent, as I make sacrifices, do I do so out of love or obligation? Are my sacrifices bringing me closer to know and love God? Reflect on this quote: “The one who devotes himself to service, will day by day grasp the necessity for it in greater measure, and will continually grow richer in faith.” –Mohandas Gandhi
