Bible Challenge – Matthew 6

“Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.” v.1 (NLT)

Do you find it easier to serve when people are around? Is it easier to follow the commands of Christ when people are watching?  I think many of us would say yes to some extent. The fact is, we all want people to have good thoughts about us, so we try to do our best, and God wants our best.  But, when we are more worried about what others think of our serving, we have missed the whole reason we serve.  We serve in-order to advance the Kingdom and His name sake, not to advance our popularity, or to make much of our name.

The reality is we serve because He served, we give because He gave, we love because He loved, everything we do should be a reflection of what He has already done.  As you go through today, think of ways that you can serve in secret.  The richest blessings are found in secret obedience, where worldly applause is silenced by a heavenly celebration!

Today, will you serve in secret? Will you live for an audience of 1?
