Fasting is not a popular topic, and I have to confess, I don’t fast as often as I could fast. As I examined my heart, I realize I made this fundamental practice a dreaded duty, rather than a welcomed practice. I made fasting too complicated.
Prayer and Bible study are disciplines we practice because we want to draw closer to God, and fasting offers the same benefits. A fast can enlarge our hearts, and it can be as simple as giving up coffee for the day.
