Jesus warns us about showing off, about doing kind and charitable acts publicly for the purpose of being seen by others. We may rationalize our behavior as trying to be a role model for others or increasing awareness of something, but Jesus reminds us that if we are showing off for our fellow man, then we will not be rewarded for our deeds in heaven. Jesus calls us to serve others and God in a spirit of humility for the benefit of all in God's Kingdom.
Don't be a show off! Humbly work for God in all you do and be a positive influence for His Kingdom.
Thank You for giving me the teacher and role model of Jesus. Help me to follow His teaching and serve Him in humility. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
