Every year since I was young I have given up something or promised “to do” something for Lent. Lent is the period of 40 days before Easter (not including Sundays), and it starts with Ash Wednesday, which this year is today, February 13th. The purpose of giving something up is to be focused less on this world and to prepare our hearts to welcome the risen Christ. In previous years I have committed to daily Bible reading, given up swearing (not this year, sorry), and one year I even gave up sugar.
