Integrity Value Experience 6

Living the law of the fast is an opportunity to practice integrity. On a designated fast Sunday, abstain from food and drink for two consecutive meals and contribute to your family’s fast offering. Have a specific purpose in mind as you fast. You might fast for a sick friend, to overcome a bad habit, to obtain a special blessing for yourself or someone else, or to give thanks. Begin and close your fast with a prayer.

Fasting is about more than food—it's about commitment, humility, honesty, trust, self-mastery, and integrity. It's an opportunity for you to overcome human weaknesses and rely on the Lord for strength.

When you're feeling hungry, remember why you're fasting and pray for strength.

Try to find a specific purpose for fasting, whether something specific or general, there are always areas where you can seek for personal strength from fasting.
