Giving Up to Give

We continue our series on the Sermon on the Mount with a passage in which Jesus is instructing his disciples in the practice of fasting.  (Jesus talks about how not to fast as well.)  Although fasting was a common practice in those days, it is less common among us.  But self-denial, one type of which is fasting, is often a part of Lent.  Why is that, and what is accomplished by fasting?   (NOTE:  Although the video begins with the Children’s Moment, once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The video of the entire service is available to watch.)
