fasting: how to & how not to

After preaching on Fasting recently, I’ve learned this about fasting:
(it comes from Matthew 6:16-18)

How not to fast:

  • do not look gloomy
  • do not do it to be seen by others
  • do not do it looking for earthly reward (which is praise of man)

How to fast:

  • anoint your head
  • wash your face
  • do it not to be seen by others
  • do it to be seen by your Father in Heaven
  • do it looking for the reward from the Father

Conclusion: we need God much much more than we need food!
