More and less

During Lent we focus on giving up something so we can get more of God. Less of this, more of that. I ran across a great list this week of 40 ideas of more this and less that. Seems to fit well with the 40 days of Lent. Take a peek and see if this might be a list for you to engage.

  1. More confidence, less doubt
  2. More action, less regret
  3. More quiet, less noise
  4. More strength, less fear
  5. More love, less hate
  6. More smiles, less tears
  7. More growth, less stagnation
  8. More celebrating, less minimizing
  9. More presence, less absence
  10. More quality, less junk
  11. More freedom, less rigidity
  12. More forgiveness, less resentment
  13. More compassion, less bitterness
  14. More focus, less distraction
  15. More intention, less default

Grace be with you,
