It amazes me how open our society has become to almost everything; living life out loud. Time was when we wanted to know every detail of a celebraties' life. Now Facebook is an example of how people share almost everything about their own personal life, and receive personal information about others, even what they had for breakfast.
It seems Jesus had something different to say about some matters; such as giving to the poor, praying to your Father, and fasting. Do you have a secret life with Him? Do you have a secret place for just you and your Lord? Jesus speaks to us in Matthew 6:
"But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you."
"But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you."
"But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face so that your fasting will not be noticed by men, but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you."
God bless you today, and always remember that you are loved!!!
