"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice and untie the
the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?
Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter-
when you see the naked, to clothe him,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help and He will say: Here am I."
Isaiah 58: 6-9
This is the essence of true fasting. After we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal savior, we must perform our acts of kindness and love so that people will see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven.
