Lent teaches us ... to look again at the familiar ...


In our lives we take so much for granted. Do we really look at those things that are a familiar, everyday part of our lives? Do we really listen to the words?


Have a look at the person next to you. When did you really look at them last? What do you notice today? Sometimes its good to look again with fresh eyes.


The same is true for the scripture. Think about a familiar passage from the Bible, or a familiar prayer - even the Lord's Prayer. Read it again as if you had never read it before. It's amazing what you can find!


Be open to God to refresh you this Lent. Where is He taking you?
