Feasting & Fasting

Peter Leithart has a wonderful post at First Things about feasting and fasting. The point of fasting is to learn how to wait. Those things from which we abstain are indeed good, but as Christians, we must learn that not all good is meant to be enjoyed immediately, on our timetable. Some pleasures are best saved for later, according to the divine timetable.
