Disgusted or Delighted?

Some people want to be recognized for their religious acts—and if they don’t get public recognition, they are gone. That’s show-off religion. Jesus had something to say about those who practice show-off religion: They will be punished most severely. The sins of these religious leaders were not the gross sins of the flesh; they were the sins of pride, greed, selfishness, and hostility. These are what may be called “religious sins.”


Giving That Grabs God’s Attention

It’s important for us to realize Jesus not only watches us when we give and knows how much we give, He also pays attention to how we give. He sees our motive. When we make an offering to God, it’s not a time to show off. Offering should NOT be a spectator event.
