40 Days of Service Day 4

Morning Prayer; Lord, how can I serve you today?
Scripture: Daniel 3

What are you willing to give up this Lenten Season? For some this is a difficultquestion. For some people, they make their decision based upon what they like the most. For me, if I was giving up something I liked the most, I would give up mint chocolate chip ice cream. There are some who make this decision based upon what takes up most of their time.  Playing on the internet might be the most time-consuming thing I do. 

These are not bad ways to decide what to give up for the Season of Lent. We give up things we like the most, because we want Jesus to be first in our lives. We give up things that consume a lot of our time, because that is time we can spend deepening our relationship with God. 

King Nebuchadnezzar applauded Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, because they, "were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God." Mint chocolate chip ice cream and time on the internet seem like small sacrifices compared to Calvary. What are you willing to give up?
