Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
Do what’s right just because it’s right. At the end of the day we have one Man we report to, and he doesn’t care who we impress. But he does care how we treat people. Doing right by our Father should be a way of life that happens naturally though hard work at times, and it might try us to our limits at times. But he will not give us more than we can handle in his strength.
He has given us wisdom and guidelines on how to live as well as giving us the right decisions if we just pay attention and trust him. We all have a conscience that tells us what’s right but sometimes we’re stubborn or try controlling the outcome instead of just trusting him.
Look for the sign the Lord gives you in what direction to go and only focus on serving him and not impressing others. Just do what’s right.
Lord, help me stay focused and trust you to show me the directions and follow the path you have laid for me, and not do things to impress others, but to serve you.
