This is my first lent as an orthodox christian.
Do you know the card game Top Trumps? Whoever has the best card in the pack beats all the others. I know I'm holding the best card, so its really really hard not to Top Trump other christians... if you get what I mean?
Yup. All too well.
It's very important to keep in mind the old adage that we're just a beggar telling another beggar where to get bread. It's not a 'I'm better' thing.
Further, we fast because we know that we are weaker (Romans 14:2). This should help us keep perspective, imho.
With prayer for your first Lent and Resurrection
