so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you. — Matthew 6:4

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. — Matthew 6:18
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal;for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. — Matthew 6:19-21
Is your Christianity on display as to exalt yourself? Do you boast of your righteousness for all to see? Is humbleness a word used in describing you when others speak of you?
Is your “religion” all about you or all about God? If it’s all about you then enjoy because you have received your reward. If it’s all about God then your reward is being stored in heaven where it can’t be marred or decay.
Where are your treasures being stored? Is Jesus the very heart of your life and ministry? Do you direct focus to/on Him? A tough lesson to learn and keep. Keep your eyes on Jesus and seek His face continually. Your heart will be storing up eternal treasures.
