3 Soul-Changing Challenges From a Seminarian to Make This Lent Count! (Do You Have What It Takes?)

Lent is a great time to grow in one’s faith and there are tons of ways one can make Lent more fruitful. However, since most often, the penances we adopt during Lent don’t stick on after Easter, I wanted to present a set of challenges to those who really want to grow as disciples of Jesus. My hope is that you will read this article and make a resolution that will help you change for the better, beyond just the Lenten season. Try it. Count up the cost of discipleship in your life and bite the bullet this Lent.

Here are 3 suggestions for deeper resolutions to draw closer to God:

1. Resolve to drop a bad habit

If you need to rationalize some area of your life, chances are, you probably need to drop it. Some things can be judged to be right from wrong easily. Others fall into grey areas that call for a bit of introspection. But often, we don’t really make an effort to do so. In some cases, these areas in our lives have been justified and rationalized by us for so long, that we may no longer even realize that it’s something we need to look at. The most common example I hear about (and I must confess that I too used to be guilty of this), is the watching of inappropriate TV shows and movies, because “I usually skip the bad scenes,” or because we feel that we’ve been around the block enough times that a little nudity or a few brief sex scenes don’t really bother us. If you find that you’re often telling yourself that you watch a TV show for its plot and that its explicit content is just incidental, you my friend, should take a good hard look at yourself.

It’s the little things. To some people it can also be the music they listen to (particularly if it’s peppered with vulgar or  foul lyrics), or it could be a nasty habit like cursing or gossip. Another area in our lives that’s often rationalized is spending way too much time and money grooming ourselves or buying clothes and accessories.
