When I say that fasting is a neglected topic, I also say that a neglected topic is the sin of eating and gorging myself to the point of gluttony. We don’t like to say it because so many are guilty of it.
Fast and pray and then eat something you need. Remember that man should not live on bread alone. Man shall live on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.
Even Jesus when he was legitimately hungry resisted the temptation to turn a stone into
bread. If eating is a Temptation, and I think we would all agree that it is, then that means that there is a Sim associated with it. In other words, when we give into the temptation in one way or another we are sinnng against God, or against ourselves, or against others.
As we are thinking about New Year’s resolutions, let’s resolve that we are going to begin daily fasting.
