"Fasting reminds us that we care about "soul" things. We care about the church. We care about the world. We care about doing God's will. Thus we willingly set aside a little comfort so we can listen and attend to the voice and nourishment of God alone. For God can give us grace and comfort and nurture we cannot get on our own."
--Adele Calhoun, "Spiritual Disciplines Handbook"
Have you decided on what to give up? What your distraction is?
Have you thought about how to spend time with God instead?
This is why we do this... For the grace and comfort that God alone can give.
SO much better than a silly TV show... or a bag of chips... or a Facebook game...
Don't you agree?
