“When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it will not be obvious to others that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
Another verse that comes to mind is Luke 18:14b For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted
I have thought and prayed about this, but I truly believe that God wants me to share this journey. I share not to be prideful or to show off...but to include others in my journey. To help inspire others to be the hands of Jesus.
This verse is my inspiration for Lent:
John 15:17 This is my command: Love one another
Pretty simple...but really not simple at all.
