Mark 7:14 [NLT] Then Jesus called to the crowd to come and hear. “All of you listen,” he said, “and try to understand. 15 It’s not what goes into your body that defiles you; you are defiled by what comes from your heart.”

I can’t help but sense the urgency in the verse, Jesus calling to the crowd, begging them to listen, imploring them to understand. I’m left wondering, “Is it my attitudes that create my appetites, or my appetites that create my attitudes?”

I currently participating in a 21 day Daniel Fast with other people in our fellowship. Participating so that God can cleanse my heart, change my heart, create in me a new heart. Participating to curb certain appetites. Participating to change certain attitudes. Participating to come to Jesus. Participating to listen to Jesus. Participating to try to understand.
