A Lenten Reflection…Author Unknown
Give up complaining and focus on gratitude. Give up pessimism and become an optimist. Give up harsh judgments and think kind thoughts. Give up worry and try to trust in God. Give up discouragement and be full of hope. Give up bitterness and turn to forgiveness. Give up hatred and return good for evil. Give up negativity and be positive instead. Give up pettiness and become more mature. Give up gloom and enjoy the beauty that is all around you. Give up jealousy and pray for trust. Give up gossiping and try to control your tongue. Give up sin and turn to virtue. Give up giving up and instead hang in there!
