The sin of pride can spoil the best of things, even our devotion to God. Jesus begins chapter six with a warning to his disciples. Don't give, pray, fast, etc. in order to be seen by men and thus ruin the integrity of these disciplines. Instead seek the true rewards that come from God when we diligently seek him. Why might Jesus warn his disciples of spiritual pride? What is the cost of making others our audience, over and above God? How might we overcome the subtle temptation to turn our faith into a means for selfish gain? Jesus answers these questions and more in today's text.
