Month of Lent.

Last Wednesday (Ash Wednesday)marks the start of Lent, and for the next 40 days until Easter people try to give up temptations, usually things like chocolate and meats. This 40-day period is said to represent the 40 days that Jesus spent in the dessert resisting Satan's temptation. My question is: " What is your temptation at work, at home around your family or around others that would help you to develop if you resisted it for the next 40 days?" Temptations come in many forms including, (at work) back stabbing, overworking, negativity, bullying, not saying no, complaining, taking long lunches, or surfing the internet in work time. What temptation at work stops you being as productive and effective as you could be? At home: being grumpy, impatient, toward our children or spouse, etc.

Towards other we meet: judgemental, unfriendly face, saying hello or smile the person standing next to you, did you just pass the beggar or homeless without even giving alms, ..etc..etc..
Towards animals, God creations, did you feed them enough food, did you pet them etc . Are we going to try to take this 40 days resisting challenge to give yourself the best possible. Please feel free to write your any kind of opinion :)
