The Appearance of Honor and Love

We want to honor God, but in that secret corner of our heart, we also want to honor ourselves. We want honor, we want glory, we want recognition, maybe sometimes even more than our wanting of those for God.

If honoring God would not bring us personal honor, glory and recognition, would you still do it? If love wouldn't make us shine, and may even make us look weak, would you still do it?

If you say you would, then honor God and love others not by doing what looks good, but by doing what is right.

"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." - Matthew 6:1
