Grace Gems: Work for God's Eye

Work for God's eye

(J. R. Miller, "In Green Pastures")

"Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness'
before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you
will have no reward from your Father in heaven."
Matthew 6:1

No grace shines more brightly in a Christian,
than humility. Wherever SELF comes in--it
mars the beauty of the work we are doing.
Seek to do your work noiselessly. Do not try
to draw attention to yourself--to make others
know that you did some beautiful thing. Be
content to pour your rich life into other wasted,
weary lives--and see them blessed and made
more holy--and then hide away and let Christ
have the honor. Work for God's eye--and even
then, do not think much about reward. Seek to
be a blessing--and never think of self-glory.

"Then your Father, who sees what is done
in secret, will reward you." Matthew 6:4

You're welcome! thanks so much for your comments!
I really liked this grace gem because it helps us as Christians not boast in our good works which God had already prepared for us, its great to be reminded everyday that we should do all for His glory and never for ours.
I'm glad it encouraged you! :)
