What is the real purpose of Lent? Many people think Lent is about making sacrifices, such as giving up their favorite food or drink, committing to spending less money or unplugging from their phone.  But sacrifice is only a portion of Lent. 

An equally important aspect of Lent is drawing closer to God.  He wants us to go beyond giving things up and become more mindful of how He is working in our lives.  Lent is a special time when we can grow in our spiritual life through meditation and prayer of God’s Word.
