What is a Shopping Fast and how do you do it?

CHRISTIAN FASTING
Fasting in the Christian faith isn’t just an exercise in self–discipline or suffering, it’s having less of something SO THAT you can have more of God. So since fasting is less about the means and more about the end result, I decided to get creative and try 7 different fasts in 7 weeks to see how each one affected my faith.

For the second week of my 7 Fasts in 7 Weeks I’m doing a Shopping Fast.

This means no shopping, period. Like a “Buy Nothing” week, this week I did no online shopping, no in-person shopping, and no deliveries. But, since this is about starting something just as much as it is about stopping something, each day of the Shopping Fast I also gave away $20 every day to someone as a way of living out Jesus’ command to give (Luke 12:33).

I expected the Shopping Fast to make me more generous, but I didn’t expect how it changed the way I look at our culture.

ABOUT WHAT JESUS SAYS ABOUT
I make the What Jesus Says About channel so you can respond to what Jesus says about topics important to you.

That’s it. No hard sell. No 30 minute sermon. Just Jesus speaking for himself so you can respond for yourself. All of this is made possible by THRED, an organization committed to open and honest conversations about life, faith, and Jesus.
