Question from a Student

Youth Pastors answering questions

I received this question from a student not in my group the other day, and figured I’d share it here to try and get feedback from others.

All my friends are giving up lame stuff for lent like being a vegetarian (they aren’t one) or chewing gum. I’m a lot more serious about lent this year for whatever reason and wish they were, too. How should I talk to them about taking it more seriously?

  1. I would say look at the sacrifice that Jesus made for you. Now look at your life and find something worthy to sacrifice yourself. Try not to pick something you think you should give up or that you think will be easy or will benefit you (no junk food), but rather something that will be a true sacrifice.
