Click to hear a clip from Sackcloth Fashion's "Pulling A Fast One"
In the Old Testament, when a person or a nation was in mourning, they would express their heart to others by wearing sackcloth, shaving their heads, and rubbing themselves with ash. It was not only an expression of mouring but also of meekeness and humility. They were putting themselves in the proper perspective with God. The same with Sackcloth Fashion. Tight beats with a right perspective.
