Lenten Backpack

I packed my backpack for my pilgrim journey. I have packed a bible to help me strengthen my faith more and more throughout my journey. I packed healthy food to give me energy as well as nutrition. I have a notebook to write down quotes and give it to people that are going through rough times, like the poor, lonely, depressed, and forgotten people.

 

As you can see I have put things that you can’t bring beside the bag, like devices. Devices can distract you from learning new things about life. Plastic water bottles, it is not good for the environment and can cause damage to animals like birds. Last but not least junk food. If you eat junk food the whole way through your journey, you will start to feel unwell and will start to grow a disease like diabetes.

What would you pack in your Lenten Bag ?

The Fall ~ The Snake & Apple

Genesis 3

This chapter tells us how evil, pain and temptation entered the world. It explains why we have struggles today as women and men. Women have painful pregnancy and period cramps because of Eve’s actions. As for Adam he doesn’t have as much of a punishment, but they were both banned from Eden’s garden to suffer. The snake that tempted them lost his legs and now has to eat dust for as long as it lives.

 

Jesse Tree ~ Family Resembles

God said, ” Let us make mankind in our image, according to our kindness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over the wild animals of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. ”

So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
