When you fast, do not look sombre as the hypocrites do, they they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
Matthew 6:16

The purpose of spiritual disciples is to develop and deepen our relationship with God and to keep us mindful of being humbled before Him.
We must be wary of being driven by pride. Pride is the root of many sins and one of the greatest blockages to an intimate relationship with God. There is nothing wrong with giving publicly, praying in a group, or telling someone we are fasting, but when done with a proud heart for the purpose of being seen, we lose the spiritual good.
When practiced in humility, spiritual disciplines will not only refresh us and draw us closer to God, but they will create wonderful opportunities where God will speak to us.

Precious Lord, forgive us for the times our pride has won out over humility. Help us to keep these spiritual disciplines and allow us to draw nearer to You. Thank You Lord. Amen

Thank You Lord for keeping us humble before you and all people. Pride will pull us away from You. In these times when we look around the world on the news, we realize being humble is what we should be focusing on. There is too much pride in the world as we see on the news and it is drawing people away from God. We can't take on everyone, but we can let people see our humility one person at a time. Keep on shining for God.
