“And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” ~ Matthew 6:16-18
Have you ever noticed that there are some folks who are always drawing attention to the fact that they are humbling themselves through fasting and prayer? Have you ever seen someone who is always looking down, sad and gloomy while trying to be humble and lowly?
I have noticed that a lot of folks confuse looking sad with being humble. Some folks walk around looking like sad-sacks thinking that they are being humble.
But being “Sad” and being “Humble” are two different things.
To be sad is to experience grief.
To be humble is to experience God.
“God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” (James 4:6)
Stay HUMBLE my Friends.
To God Be The Glory!
