Spiritual Success

Scripture: Matthew 6:1-21

Christians in our culture often have a difficult time getting on with the business of life, of being “successful” in this culture.

Jesus reminds us that our measure of success is different. He reminds us not to fall into the trap of the world’s definition of greatness or the pursuit of the world’s reward. How can we expect to do something for the benefit and praise of man and gain reward from God?

Whatever we do, we need to make sure that we are doing it to glorify God, not ourselves.

The reality is that Jesus doesn’t care about how many words we say, but that we say the right ones.

God wants us to have a good intention as we go about doing life, to do good because it is what God has shown us is necessary–for life, for our relationship with Him.

There is no law against love. Love is the law.
