God's reasons *not* to give up something for Lent

(Not that it's wrong...but there are more important things :) )

During Lent, we remember God's sacrifice of Himself to save us from hell.

What about the sacrifices God requires of us?

I'd rather for you to be faithful and to know Me than to offer sacrifices. - God the Father

Instead of offering sacrifices to Me, I want you to be merciful to others. - Jesus

May this season be holy and meaningful for us all :)

* from Hosea 6:6 (Old Testament); Matthew 12:7 (New Testament)
