Fasting is only worth it, if it pleases the heart of God

Isa 58:6-7 “Berpuasa yang Kukehendaki, ialah supaya engkau membuka belenggu-belenggu kelaliman, dan melepaskan tali-tali kuk, supaya engkau memerdekakan orang yang teraniaya dan mematahkan setiap kuk, supaya engkau memecah-mecah rotimu bagi orang yang lapar dan membawa ke rumahmu orang miskin yang tak punya rumah, dan apabila engkau melihat orang telanjang, supaya engkau memberi dia pakaian dan tidak menyembunyikan diri terhadap saudaramu sendiri!”

“Isn’t the fast I choose: To break the chains of wickedness, to untie the ropes of the yoke, to set the oppressed free, and to tear off every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, to bring the poor and homeless into your house, to clothe the naked when you see him, and not to ignore your own flesh and blood?”
