Reading: Isaiah 58:1-9
by Rev. Gregory Houck, O.Carm.
There is a great quote attributed to Lao Tzu (founder of Taoism): “Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny.” Keep this in mind as you listen to today’s powerful first reading from the Prophet Isaiah (Is 58:1-9) about the difference between false fasting and true fasting. Your path, whether false or true, begins with your thoughts.
