Matthew 6:1-21

The praise and honor of men is quite fickle. At a moment’s notice, once ardent praise can become bitter, hate-filled words. This reward will do you no good. It is corruptible, easily devalued, and holds no eternal significance. The praise and honor of the Lord is the only worthwhile reward. The glory and praise of men can never compare. His reward is eternal and valuable. It cannot be stolen or corrupted by the things of this world. It is truly the only reward. Be not as the hypocrites, searching for the worthless praise of men, but long for the praise of God.
