Person 2: What are you doing?
Person 1: Observing Lint.
Person 2: I see that, but why?
Person 1: (continues rolling) It’s that time of year when Christians observe Lint for 40 days before Easter.
Person 2: Oh my. I’m glad you’re trying to be faithful, but you have it all wrong! You’re thinking of Lent, L-E-N-T, not lint!
Lent is the forty-days leading up to Easter when Jesus’ followers remember that he was tempted by Satan in the desert for forty days. And during that time, he prayed and fasted to defeat Satan.
Children, do you know what it means to fast? (Receive answers. Fasting is giving up something we enjoy doing or eating. Christians do this as a way to remember that Jesus suffered on the cross for our sake, he gave his life for ours.)
Person 1: So that’s why people give up something for Lent! Maybe I’ll give up this lint roller!
Person 2: Okaaay…I think we need to read God’s Word now.
