The Rev. Dr. Christopher J. Benek
"From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."
During Lent, it is common for people to commit to giving up luxuries as a form of repentance. We abandon the things we enjoy like sweets, soda, or $5 cups of coffee. Others will temporarily abandon their vices – only to return to them, ironically enough, on Easter Day. Hooray! Jesus is risen – so now I can smoke, swear and get on social media again! Not so fast.
