The Secret Life

Jesus provides a strong warning to those who wish to practice their godliness in front of others. The sincerity of practicing generosity, prayer, and fasting should have nothing to do with creating an impression on others. God is most concerned with your motive in practicing your Christian life. He rewards those who focus on pleasing Him without regard to others’ perception. The
challenge of these verses leaves us asking if our motives are pure as we seek to love God and neighbor.
