Avoid a hypocritical fast


Sorry for the lack of an email yesterday; I let the day get away from me.

"They seek me day by day, and they desire to know My ways, as though they were a nation that had performed righteousness and not abandoned the law of its god.

"They ask me for judgment of justice and they desire to be close to Gd. 'Why have we fasted and You have not seen, we have oppressed our spirits and You do not know?' But on the day of your fast you pursue your own needs, and you oppress people for your payments."

(Isaiah 58:2-3 - and see more there)

Note: One must fast, even if one does not feel it inside. The goal is to work on both the fast and the sincere feeling.

Have a great day,
