Fasting key #3

Fasting should not be forced 

Jesus had just called Matthew to follow him, and was sitting in a house where publicans and sinners came to dwell (Matthew 9).  The Pharisees saw this and were amazed, asking why are these people not fasting as we and John’s disciples? These men obviously seemed to fast and expected others to also, Jesus however stated that this was not the time to fast. Just because the church you go to decide to call a fast, it does not mean you have to, likewise with a family member. Fasting is something solely to God. If fasting is not in your heart, don’t waste time!
