Matthew 6:16-18
 
Fasting provides that “low hum” of discomfort in our bodies, convincing us to keep deliberately working on our faith. There is a benefit to struggle in secret rather than struggling before the eyes of others. We find that in secret our ego evaporates and we are lead to deeper contentment.
 
“The only purpose of such practices (as fasting) is to make disciples more willing and more joyous in following the designated path and doing the works required of them.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
