“Meanwhile, when a crowd of many thousands had gathered, so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, saying: “Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.”

– Luke 12:1-3

What you do in secret is the most powerful thing you do. What you say in secret is the truest thing you believe. When it’s in secret, only one other person other than you sees it, and it’s the Lord. And He rewards the good that you do in secret. He does, He does. There’s a part of me that almost wants to do good in secret and hope that nobody notices. I have seen what God does to people like that: He blesses them, He pours out favor on them, and He opens opportunity. It always comes around. That’s why Jesus said, “Everything that is whispered in the rooms will be shouted from the rooftops.” That’s a scary thing, isn’t it?


Thank you, Lord, for blessing me when I do your work. Help me put aside my ego and my pride, and to do things in secret for you.
