Why I Stopped My Fast Before 6’O Clock1 min read

Tola’s Thoughts On Faith & Life 

On Thursdays, I usually do my personal fast

This is a practice I have had for a couple of years.

Something happened today.

I was fasting and completely unable to give my best at work.

Thinking came harder to me, not like other fasting days.

During my break time, I went somewhere to pray

And then it occurred to me

I was fasting to God and robbing my employer of my best

Such anachronism.


So, I did a bit more praying

Afterward, I ended my fast and had something to eat.

Before my 6pm end time.

I think my fasting should not steal from my boss.

I should fast – serving God and man

Bringing glory to God

A married guy with a precocious son who works his (I mean me, not my son - I bet you know, right?) day job as a financial guy trying to make real estate projects have some sense to the investor. I like to talk about what I learn along the way as I live my faith in life (family, work, friendships, fellowship, community and anything else you can put here).
