Just Wondering…

I was just wondering what you thought about fasting. You know what I mean, giving up something in order to show your humility before the Lord. Perhaps you think that giving up your Sunday is as much of a fast as you can express. Maybe you think that if you give up that broccoli your body will benefit through some personal spiritual gestalt. Isn’t fasting to be the same as sacrifice and if it is, then should you not be fasting everyday for the One who sacrificed for you? Have you lost your attention to abstention and your spirituality is on a hunger strike? Shouldn’t our lives be one of fasting? Makes one wonder…
