Mt. 6:16-18 Fasting

Sermon on the Mount

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

This section of Matthew discusses fasting, as you could easily discern from the title. Bible.org has an article named Grrrr. Ohhh!Matthew, 6:16-18. lol. Recommended reading, for sure.


16"When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. 17But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18so that it will not be obious to men that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
