I stumbled across this image while surfing the web this morning in search of Lenten reflections. I think it’s a provocative image for all of us living in a consumer culture. What God has for us–and wants for us–is so much better, deeper, and precious than the mountains of stuff we heap into our shopping carts. It’s also a powerful reminder (for me, anyway) that faith is about checking in rather than checking out. That’s what Lent helps us to do, and why it’s such an important and holy season. Blessings for the Lenten journey.
