  • The Importance of ‘Acts of Righteousness’

Jesus expects his followers to be giving people – v2

  • Don’t give for your own gain
      • ‘Don’t be like the hypocrites’ - v2
      • ‘hypocrite’ = an actor
  • Give as secretly as possible
      • ‘Don’t let you left hand know what you right is doing’ – v3

Give in as understated, non self centred as possible!

  • Good givers will be rewarded! ‘You will be rewarded’ – v4
    • So what are these rewards?
      • Not health or wealth
      • Beware of any preacher that offers these!
    • The rewards God gives are more valuable than material things.
      • Rewards on earth - peace, comfort, satisfaction, acceptance and reassurance from God (Beatitudes)
      • Rewards he keeps for us in heaven - Matt 5:12 & 25:23

    • Don’t work for rewards – but be assured that if you give freely you will not lose out but actually gain.
    • Only when you die to self and live for God and others will you get what you seek!
