1 Do not practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
16 When you fast (diet and exercise), do not mope around and look pathetic, like the money-grubbing, tabloid posers do. They are putting on a show for others, and they have received their reward in full. 17 Instead, when you fast, be cheerful, put gel in your hair, and wear cologne and perfume (put oil on your head and wash your face), 18 so that no one will know you are fasting. Your unseen Father always knows what you are doing, and He will reward you with unexpected gifts.
19 Do not store treasures on earth, where moths and rats ruin and consume and where crooks break in, cheat, and steal. The moths, rats, and crooks are insatiable. Watch out! It is only God’s Grace that separates you from them!
20 Instead store your treasure in heaven. 21 Because your heart will be where your treasure is.
