Lenten Discipline

Let’s consider the importance of your Lenten “discipline.”

Discipline is a quality that brings order and structure to our lives. Lenten discipline is not just about prayer and fasting, but about developing the self-control to become the best version of ourselves. During Lent, we identify what brings us closer to God, and then modify our activities and behavior to accomplish our Lenten goals.

 Discipline acts as a bridge between setting goals and achieving them. It allows us to avoid distractions that derail progress. During Lent, we practice training our minds to concentrate on the tasks at hand.  We establish positive habits that become ingrained into routines.

Discipline is not about being rigid or harsh with yourself. It’s about developing a work ethic, self-control, and the ability to make choices that benefit you in the long run.
