Fat Tuesday

What a crazy day!

Fat Tuesday!

Mardi Gras!

woot woot, lets go party it up, because tomorrow we are giving it all up for Christ as part of Lent.

Yep, What a crazy day.

Now, I am not attempted to be a buzz kill at all with this little bit of encouragement today, but there is something interesting about this whole concept to me Take a look at the Christos says about giving stuff up.

23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. 24 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. Luke 9:23-24 (New International Version, ©2011)

It’s an interesting comparison to the whole concept of having a day of excess before you give up something for Him. Tough message, tougher to do.

What do you think?
