10 Questions to Ask Yourself This Easter

10 Questions to Ask Yourself:

1. When I wake up on Resurrection Sunday morning, how will I be different?

2. Is there a habit or sin in my life that repeatedly gets in the way of loving God with my whole heart or loving my neighbor as myself? How do I address that habit over the next 40 days?

3. Is there anyone in my life from whom I need to ask forgiveness or pursue reconciliation?

4. What practical steps can I take to carve out time for daily contemplation?

5. What spiritual discipline do I need to improve upon or want to try?

6. What are some things in my life that I tell myself I need but I don’t? Can I give one or two of them up for 40 days?

7. Why am I giving this particular thing up? How does giving it up draw me closer to God and prepare me for Easter?

8. What am I going to tell myself when self-denial gets hard?

9. Is it necessary/helpful for me to share the nature my fast with others or should I keep it private?

10. What do the ashes mean to me this year? What does baptism mean to me this year?
