Giving Up Contempt for Lent: The Clock Ticks Down

After weeks of giving up contempt for Lent, I realize just how much more I’ve become aware of the presence of contempt in my life as well as the many ways it expresses or shows itself-sarcasm, biting comments, darker humor.

I also find myself catching myself-apologizing quickly for making such comments, changing the conversation’s direction, silencing any further statements.

While being aware is essential, I long for more. I don’t want to just be aware of contempt or even give it up but be rid of contempt. Maybe that’s not possible. But I keep praying. Keep asking. Keep hoping for some sort of further breakthrough.

The days are passing by. Easter is coming. Jesus. Bring. Your. Resurrection. In. This. Area. Of. My. Life.
