“Your Father who sees all that is done in secret will reward you.”

Matthew 6:1-6; 16-18

Today, many people in the world say, “Look at me!” They demand our attention on Australia’s got talent. They show off how great they are on YouTube and Facebook. They are honoured by others and they have received their reward in full.

Jesus calls us to be righteous, but to do our good deeds in secret. How do we give to the needy, pray and fast? Do we make sure that others know about it? Father, please help us to feel your presence with us, so that we can share in your happiness when we do your will. We can receive our reward from you now, we do not have to wait until we are with you eternally in heaven.
