Time: 2:20 PM

Weather: a little chilly 🙂

Readings: Isiah, chapters 58 – 63

Noteworthy Verse:

“The bottom line on your ‘fast days’ is profit.  You drive your employees much too hard.  You fast, but at the same time you bicker and fight.  You fast, but you swing a mean fist.  The kind of fasting you do won’t get your prayers off the ground.  Do you think this is the kind of fast day I’m after: a day to show off your humility?  To put on a pious face and parade around solemnly in black?  Do you call that fasting, a fast day that I, God, would like?”

Isiah 58:3-5

Significance:

  • These verses serve as an important reminder that when we are living for the Lord we are called to do it for the Lord… not so that we can show off how “religious” we are and try to impress other people.  We are called to live for the Lord even when no one else is watching.

Feelings:
I completely lost my voice this week… feeling a little inhibited.
