Fasting for God

Fasting, like prayer, is an ancient practice observed by many religious people. It was not uncommon for the Pharisees to use fasting as another way to prove their righteousness. Though He does not command fasting, Jesus regulates it by advising us to keep our fasts between ourselves and God. He also warns us about the dangers of materialism, encouraging us instead to “lay up treasure in heaven,” fixing our perspective and priorities on what will last for eternity.
