Be Fast To Offer Assistance

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Friday, February 16, 2018

Lent is just getting under way, a good time to carefully consider one of its key traditions: fasting. What can fasting mean in our health-conscious culture? The fasting of Lent is not about eating less for its own sake. In the Book of Isaiah, God addresses the mistake of settling for the outward trappings of penance. “Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free?” We’re encouraged to fast by sharing our bread with the hungry and bringing the homeless into our own homes. Now that’s some serious fasting!
