When we hear the words of Jesus on our motivations, we realize that we must let in the light to scatter the darkness from our lives. Will we and our hearts be changed forever by Jesus’ words in Matthew 6?

Surgery is no fun, but it can be necessary and crucial. Spiritual surgery is the same: it isn’t enjoyable, but it is rewarding. Let’s analyze our inner motivations, in order that our attitudes might be improved as we serve the Lord.

Good deeds can be seen, but motivations can’t. Why we behave the way we do is a key part of Christ’s teaching in Matthew 6. Are we laboring for the praise of men? Our Lord wants our works to done with Him in mind.

Many of us say grace together before eating a meal. Prayer is the vehicle that takes our thanks before God’s throne. Jesus also taught us to pray in secret, that we might one day be rewarded openly.
