Fast in the BIble: Matthew 6:16
Humility is an important virtue, and especially so in worship. The point of acts of worship--prayer, fasting, or charity--is to glorify God, not our own egos. Those who make a big public deal of their good deeds and acts of worship in order to look better in the eyes of others are hypocrites.

“[The Birth of Jesus] In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.”
- Luke 2:1, 4-5
