Sermon Discussion Questions
"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
1. When you think of Spiritual Disciplines (things that you do to draw you closer in your relationship with God and help you be more like Jesus), what things do you think of?
2. In Matthew 6:1-18, Jesus deals with the three spiritual disciplines of giving, praying, and fasting. If you had to rank these in order of importance, how would you rank them and why?
3. Someone once said, “When you play to an audience of One, the applause never ends.” How does this apply in our relationship with God?
4. Read Matthew 6:4, 6, 18 – what phrase do you see Jesus repeating in these verses? Why is this important when it comes to our giving, praying and fasting?
It takes faith to let God alone observe our righteous deeds. But we must be content to let Him keep the records. For with Him alone is the reward that matters.
