Matthew 9:14-17 Jeremiah 10:1-7
Some quotes, and possibly some are my reflections.
We like to be free but we like our traditions.
Rituals can be performed without Jesus at the centre of it all.
Doing things for the sake of the things, or the doing themselves, misses the point.
We don’t understand the inward focus because we’re too busy with the outward focus.
We fast for something we don’t have, and long for. Longing for intimacy with God? Fast from those things which hide my longing; fast until my longing is fulfilled – with his presence.
