Daily reflections: Friday: February 20/15

 

Gospel: Matthew 9:14... in this gospel of master of fasting comes to the forefront. The question is asked, “why do we fast?”And this is a good question for us as we begin the legendary, why do we fast and what do we fast from? So often, people think they\'re fasting when they give up chocolates, or smoking, or drinking etc. Those kinds of giving up our something like New Year\'s resolution unless just about as long. There is real fasting when it will bring about a change for example, to fast from judging other people, to fast from negativity, to fast from a bad attitude, to fast from being self-critical, to fast from guilt, to fast from anger, and fast from punishment, to fast from selfishness,... they are a few things you fasting from will change a person and make one a better person and that\'s what fasting for.

 

Reflection: a suggestion that you examine what you are fasting from and want change are trying to make in yourself?

 

Prayer: Lord Jesus, very many people give up things during lent which does not improve them or change them into a better human being. This lent, led by the Spirit, I hope to see the changes I need to make my life and choose fasting to bring about that growth and change. Amen
