(Gospel) Did John's disciples have it all wrong?
They wanted to know WHY Jesus' disciples didn't fast, while they did. We could almost say, while they HAD TO.
But wasn't it perfectly fine, since they were asking Jesus himself?
Well, it would have been perfectly fine if they were sincerely asking what they should be doing. Where they messed up, was in comparing themselves with others, instead of asking themselves whether they were truly doing God's will.
It is not enough to approach God in prayer, we are also required to ask -humbly- what he wants of us.
