I'll tell you why

Isaiah 58
"If you extend your soul to the hungry.... if you turn away your foot from the Sabbath.... then you shall delight yourself in the LORD."

Israel was asking: why doesn’t God hear us when we fast so hard? The answer was that they did not help the poor, they were full of strife and infighting, and they did as they pleased on the Sabbath. We find satisfaction in selfish materialism. We find satisfaction in pointing fingers. We find satisfaction in doing what we want on the Lord’s Day. Instead, we are supposed to find satisfaction and rest in Christ, delighting in Him. Let us find rest and joy in being generous as He was. Let us be satisfied with bearing our own load and helping others as He did. Let us take rest not so much in our entertainments as in clinging to Christ on His Day.
