"Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness' before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven."
Jesus cuts to the heart again, and asks, "What is your motivation?"
Ask yourself that question. Why do you do what you do? What is the internal motivation? I have heard it said, "You do what you do, because you want what you want." And I would agree, but then you have to ask, "What did I want when I did that?!?"
I would like to encourage you today, to ask yourself these hard questions.
