Is Lent temporary for you, or are the acts of repentance, prayer, and fasting a means to change your life and your heart forever?
To change one’s heart to reflect the image of God is to give without expecting anything in return; to receive only the virtues that begin to develop within us and to view the world through the eyes of God. We witness the world with a deeper understanding of others and make the world a more beautiful place, one person at a time. To be transformed by God’s love and mercy.
Before watching this video, ask yourself, as a Christian, how do you determine the greater good when you have a conflict between two ethical values like justice and mercy? How is God changing your heart this Lent?
JUSTICE: the quality of being fair; conformity to truth, fact, or reason.
MERCY: compassion or forgiveness is shown toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm.
