                Lenten Promises  !!!            

Just a few short weeks ago, we made NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS.  Have you been able to stick to what you intended to do?  Huh … Huh …Huh.  Some have you have probably achieved some success, and the rest of you have probably back slid.

Well, now comes more PROBLEMS.  Yes, the biggie, Lent.

Those New Year’s Resolutions where promises we made to ourselves, so if we broke them, we only HURT ourselves.

Lenten Promises are much different.  They are things we Promise GOD, and that’s a ” Horse of a Different Color. “

I am going to suggest one thing for you to consider to give up for Lent.

Look at PROVERBS 6: 16-19.

There are SEVEN things the Lord HATES and cannot TOLERATE.

1.  A Proud and Haughty Appearance.

2.  A Lying Tongue.

3.  Killing Innocent People.

4.  A Mind that thinks up Wicked Plans.

5.  Doing Evil.

6.  Someone who TELLS one LIE after another.

7.  Someone who stirs up TROUBLE among FRIENDS.

Now, NUMBER 3, will NOT fall into most of our lives, unless we use the other SIX.  Killing does NOT have to be done with a Weapon.

So, instead of giving up the Proverbial and Classical things we have always done, and you know what I am talking about.

It says the Lord hates these SEVEN things, so do what the picture shows, at the top of this page, sit with JESUS, and talk to Him about what I have just SUGGESTED.

THEN YOU CAN MAKE YOUR LENTEN PROMISES THAT MAY MEAN SOMETHING THIS YEAR.
