17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face 18 so that your fasting will not be noticed by men, but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

Jesus next describes how a True Disciple ought to practice the spiritual discipline of fasting. What should a Christ follower do to avoid being “noticed by men?” What is God’s response when His children approach the practice of fasting with the right focus and behavior? Are you experiencing God’s “rewards” as you fast?
