One of the most neglected spiritual disciplines is fasting. The Scripture is full of instructions and examples of fasting and yet the practice is often absent in the Church.
Too often, people think of fasting as a spiritual diet. Desiring to lose a few pounds, someone will skip a meal and say they are fasting. If you aren’t spending the time seeking the Lord, that’s not fasting – that’s a diet. Fasting is so much more than abstaining from a meal for your figure’s sake.
