“Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them.  Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.” Matthew 6:1. Jesus desires for us to live with an unrelenting, selfless devotion to Him.  The Bible calls us to good deeds and holy living, but these are to be acts of worship and obedience, not orchestrated acts for self-glorification.  The apostle Paul endorses this whole-life faithfulness when he pleads with us to make our bodies “a living sacrifice” (Romans 12:1). May our private and public moments speak of our devotion and wholehearted commitment to Jesus.  The more we serve Christ, the less we will serve self.
