Fresh Studies in Matthew: 5:14
Let your light so shine before men so that they may give glory to your Father in heaven. If all they see is my good words, the point is missed. Dong good works in such a way that God gets the glory is a tough one. It also means we have to get out of the self-glory business. At the same time we can get too worried about that and stop from doing good works, overanalyzing our better impulses. Sure, the flesh and Satan will try to convince us we are doing it for self-glory when we weren’t even thinking about that in the first place, and those temptations to believe that lie can paralyze us. Overawareness can rob us of the freedom of obedience. God can redeem good works that may have a slight taint of self-righteousness.
