WATCHING GOD WATCHING US Matthew 6:1-18
Giving to others: • It is not IF But WHEN Mark 14:7 NLT “You will always have the poor among you, and you can help them whenever you want to. But you will not always have me.”
Giving to Others: • Give to be admired by one person: GOD!
How About Prayer? • Prayer is meant to be honest and deep communication with our Heavenly Father, not meaningless babbles or memorized prayers that have no meaning to you.
How about Fasting? • When you choose to fast over a problem, don’t advertise how spiritual you are.
God is Watching… • Whether or not we have the correct motivation when we give to others…
God is Watching… • Whether our prayers are only for the attention and admiration from man.
God is watching… • Whether or not we are serious in our fasting…serious enough to not tell anyone that we are fasting
God is watching… • He rewards thoughtful giving… • He rewards sincere prayer… • He rewards secret fasting.
