Why Give Something Up For Lent?

Why Give Something Up For Lent?

Every morning when I walk by my coffee pot, I experience actual physical longing. So I whine and count the days until Easter when I can have it back.

But every time the longing hits, I imagine the fully divine Jesus, stuck here for 33 years trying to teach limited, harassed, confused, arrogant, stubborn humans like me how to live. How he must have counted the minutes until Easter.
