Today we’re having a time of prayer and fasting as a congregation.
Gasp! He broke the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” rule about fasting!
Isn’t it about time we got over that? Yes, Jesus said not to tell anyone when you are fasting. He also, in the same chapter and the same context, told us to only pray in a closet. Ever seen that commandment violated? To be honest, I’ve rarely seen that one followed!
Have you ever let your left hand know what your right hand was doing when you were giving? Did that invalidate your generosity?
If we don’t talk about fasting (in the right way), we’ll never learn about fasting. And to be honest, we’ll rarely practice fasting.
