Matthew 6:1 – Do Things Before God

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient to the day is the evil thereof.

– Matthew 6:1

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Why did the Lord Jesus say this sentence? We help and care for others in need, but our intention is for keeping a good image in people’s heart or want more people to know what we have done, so that we can be approved by others, not for helping them with a true heart. This is exactly what disgusts God. God’s words, “Do not do things before men; you should do them before God. By accepting God’s observation and inspection, your heart is set aright. If you are always concerned with acting for people to see, then your heart will never be set aright. Also, when you act do not act for yourself. Do not take into account your own interests. Do not take into account the interests of man. Do not take into account your own position, face, or reputation. First take into account the interests of God’s house. Put the interests of God’s house first. Be considerate of God’s intention. Consider these first: Are there impurities in your performance of your duty? Are you fully devoted? Have you fulfilled your responsibility? Have you expended your full effort? Do you act with all your might and heart out of consideration for your duty and the work of God’s house? You must consider these things.

 

Prayer

O God! May You cleanse my incorrect intention so that I can pursue to satisfy You. I don’t care how others treat me but I wanna perform my duty faithfully. That’s what I should do!
