Okay, back to the title of this blog post and our Lenten journey. Don't judge a book by its cover is a common phrase. Do we sometimes look at other people and judge them harshly by what we see?
Let's strive to extend grace to other people and give them the benefit of the doubt. We each carry crosses of one type or another. We can probably all benefit from a little less criticism and a little more encouragement and support.
During Lent, I will try to do several things in these pages:
1. I will try to encourage you in your journey;
2. I will ask you to ponder and reflect;
3. I will challenge you to grow.
Here is today's lesson. Complete the following sentences about yourself:
A. The five adjectives that best describe me are.....
B. My favorite way to pray is.....
C. One weakness of my prayer life is.....
The grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father, and the power of the Holy Spirit is with you!
