for who?

11 Feb

160211Then the word of the LORD of hosts came to me: Say to all the people of the land and the priests: When you fasted and lamented in the fifth month and in the seventh, for these seventy years, was it for me that you fasted? And when you eat and when you drink, do you not eat and drink only for yourselves? Were not these the words that the LORD proclaimed by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, along with the towns around it, and when the Negeb and the Shephelah were inhabited? The word of the LORD came to Zechariah, saying: Thus says the LORD of hosts: Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another; do not oppress the widow, the orphan, the alien, or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another. (Zechariah 7:4-10, NRSV)

When you fasted who did you do that for?

Was it for me or for you to get noticed?

And when you eat why do you do it?

Why do we do the things we do? Is it because we want attention? Do we draw attention to ourselves or do we do things so others will see God?

So for who do you do things? Is it for you, or for God?
