MAY 8 – FATHER

05/08 Matthew 6:16-18
“And when you fast, don’t make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, who try to look pale and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting. I assure you, that is the only reward they will ever get. 17 But when you fast, comb your hair and wash your face. 18 Then no one will suspect you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in secret. And your Father, who knows all secrets, will reward you.
FATHER
We talk to the Father to build a relationship with Him, to care for those in need and to equip us to serve Him. We don’t talk to the Father to impress others therefore when we are fasting and praying we need to make sure that we do it to relate to the Father. The Lord knows our heart.
