So, the Holy Spirit is not capable of doing it, or perhaps you believe you can do a better job of helping a brother or sister decide what to "give up" for lent? Your approach sounds great, and I confess I used to fall into that mode/ trap/ habit every lenten season right there with the rest of my RCC brothers and sisters. Now with my eyes opened to the Truth by the Holy Spirit, I see that such a approach is not truly "exhortation."

When is the Truth of the Holy Spirit going to reveal to you that you are just being condescending and trite towards the 2000 year tradition of wisdom that formed your, and your fundamentalist pastor's, whole understanding of it?
