An Open Reward...
This month we're kicking off a new series of Monday Motivational Moment posts. I've collaborated with some excellent writers, to bring you thought-provoking, inspirational posts based on their favorite scriptures.
Today's featured writer, is author Paulette Jones. Her message while short and sweet, is definitely on point, and I love this! I really pray that many people will read her message and learn from this. Please welcome her below and read on...
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. Matthew 6:3-4 King James Version (KJV).
Spreading the news is not always a plus to me. It may be the way I was developed that not everything you do requires an audience. In today’s world that feels more and more like a message that should be spread. Our need to know drives me further and further to just doing because it’s the right thing. Not for the flare of people knowing “I did that” or “I helped them.”
My heart says the best thing to do is to just stay silent and see things through. This verse is maybe more a description of me and how I pray I am living my life. I slip for sure in many different aspects of my life and have no idea if I’m fully headed in the right direction. So, I live, I do my best to be humble, and help where and when I can, and just as the verse says “thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.” I’m not living for the reward or even the possibility of it, I’m just living knowing I’m doing the best I can with what I’ve been given.
