Re: Verse reading–Matthew 6:1-18 (day three) “If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven” (vs 1) We hear the peculiar and powerful perspective of Christ in these words. He viewed EVERYTHING against its eternal outcome. Nothing had value in and of itself. If an action or attitude brought no reward (or negatively impacted the potential for reward) it was to be avoided. If an action or attitude led toward the recognition and approval of the Father it was to be embraced. A simple system. Simply life-changing. I am convinced that this re-0rientation to eternity must still take place in our lives. How would our lives be different if the promise of God’s approval and reward was our only concentration? The Bible describes this forward focus in Abraham. “He was looking for a city whose architect and builder was God” (Hebrews 11:10) May the same be said of us!
