21 Apr Matthew 6:16

16 “Whenever you fast, do not put on a gloomy face as the hypocrites do, for they neglect their appearance so that they will be noticed by men when they are fasting. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.

Jesus’ final “application” relates to the practice of fasting. What did Jesus say His followers should not do when they fast? If one fasts in such a way so as to be noticed by men, what is the source of his/her reward? What is your motive for the practice of fasting or any of your other spiritual disciplines?
