A friend from church confessed a week ago that she had already "blown it" regarding what she had given up for Lent. That got me to wondering. What does it mean to slip on a commitment like Lent? Is it a commitment between you and God that you have "failed?" Or is it more a matter of good intentions? What do you do when you slip? Do you pick back up with it or do you give up all together?
I'm always tempted to just give it up, but my husband usually reminds me "Jesus didn't quit when it came to the cross..." and how do you argue with that?! =-)
So, what do you think it means when you make a mistake during Lent?
