Ed Young Television Devotional
God Knows Our Secret Works
“Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.” – >Matthew 6:4
It feels good when we do good deeds. And if we’re honest with ourselves, it feels even better when others praise us for doing it. After all, who doesn't want to be acknowledged? But what if no one ever saw what you do? Would you still be motivated to act justly?
The truth is, God sees it all! In fact, God’s infinite knowledge of everything we do, say, think, etc… can sometimes make us uncomfortable. But instead of feeling uncomfortable, we should be comforted. He is watching us because he loves us and we are important to Him. So, those good deeds we do in private are not really that private. God sees it; He is pleased and you will be rewarded.
Ask God to reveal to you the source of your motivation. Ask Him to help you change your motivation, if necessary, and to feel His pleasure when you act justly.
Do something nice for someone else today, but do it anonymously. As tempting as it may be, don’t let anyone know you did it. God knows. Pleasing Him is all that matters.
