Fasting is not about food. It’s about the spiritual connection between you and God. It’s about the ONE who created food!
Matthew 6: 16-18
16 “Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
1 Peter 5:6
Matthew 15:10, 16
