Is Not This The Fast

“Is not this the fast that I have chosen; to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every enslaving yoke?”  Isaiah 58:3

Fasting is not all about not eating something or not doing something.  In this verse today the Lord, through Isaiah, is saying the fast He has chosen is to do something, to help others. By helping others we humble ourselves before Him, as Jesus humbled Himself enough to die on the cross for our sins.

Look for ways around you that you can help others as part of your fast.
