The woman seemed to be going about her day as usual. She had a smile on her face. She was going to live this day to the glory of God, just like she would any other. But unbeknownst to others part of her worship this day would include fasting.
Another woman steps out to begin her workday. She too serves The Lord. And today she has given herself over to fasting. But instead of her usual smile she is wearing a frown, in hopes that someone will ask her why the change in her countenance.
Fasting is an act that The Lord takes pleasure in His children doing, when they’re doing it for Him. Not for others to see.
How about the things you do for The Lord? Do you do them to glorify Him or do you do them to get a pat on the back?
The rewards in heaven far outweigh the rewards of man. Check the intent of your heart.
