7 Fasts for Today


In addition to the traditional fast of food, consider the following 7 fasts to help you pay closer attention to God:
1. Drive with the radio off
2. Turn your cell phone off for 24 hours
3. Stay off Internet and Email for 24 hours
4. Devote one day to NO complaints, criticism or sarcasm
5. Spend one day smiling at every person you encounter
6. During your normal TV news routine, read the Psalms for 30 minutes instead
7. Go sit outside somewhere without a book, newspaper, magazine or ipod and pay attention for 60 minutes

Only if one is so led to abandon them. I don't think any are inherently wrong, but can become dominating.
