Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.” – Matt 6:1

Here is the choice: would you rather be seen by men, or by God? Would you rather be recognized by man, or by God? Would you rather be rewarded by man, or by God?

Take heed that the goal of your service to God is not to be seen by others. God sees everything you do. You don’t need to publicize your charity! When you are really living to please God, you will have no need of the approval of man.

You cannot please both God and man. Are you ready to live for an audience of One?

Prayer:

Father, I pray everything I do would please You. Help me to seek Your approval, and never the approval of man!
