Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18

Jesus said to his disciples, “Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father. When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets to win the praise of others. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing, so that your alms giving may be secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

“When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, who love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on street corners so that others may see them.  Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

“When you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites. They neglect their appearance, so that they may appear to others to be fasting. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you may not appear to others to be fasting, except to your Father who is hidden. And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.”

The Daily Path: Someday Steve Jobs and the design team at Apple will develop a personal Tivo device that will record all of our movements for replay at a later time. Unfortunately for Steve and all holding Apple stock, this has already been brought to market. God has been doing it since the beginning of time. On the shelves of the Pearly Archives sit bizillions of life minutes from every one of his children. You see, a wifi transmitter is in every human heart. It sends a signal direct to God. He knows what’s in our heart every moment. He knows the love, the hurt, the anger, the joy, the sadness, the benevolence, the forgiveness, the hurt, sorrow, repentance, generosity… and everything else that we feel and do.

No earthly marketing of our deeds is needed, nor is any accepted. Only one judge matters and He already sees us. So SMILE!
