Fasting is a core principle of scripture that often get’s forgotten in our seeker-centered church world. Fasting is a denial of your worldly appetites. And it’s not just food. It could be from the internet, from swearing, from many other bad habits and preoccupations, you name it. Fasting is an exercise that conditions us to tame our base instincts, so we can learn to listen to and follow God. In a way, it teaches us to love.
