Love doesn’t get any nobler than agápe. There is no doubt that agápe is the highest kind of love there is. No other type of earthly love can come close to God’s unconditional, self-denying, long-suffering, kind, and supportive type of love.
We are not to fast so that we selfishly can use what we receive from God for our own current wants, or even our own present needs. Neither are we to fast so that we can hoard, for our own future benefit, what we have received. Instead, we fast so that we can overspend ourselves (pour out of ourselves) to such an extent that our helping others in need empties us, makes us become poor for their sake, just like our Lord “for [our] sakes…became poor, that [we] through His poverty might be rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9, KJ21).
