The Gospel of Matthew, Part 21
The Guts to Give
The first half of chapter six in Matthew, which we are starting today, deals with three important areas in the life of a Christian. Those are the areas of giving to the needy (charity, not tithing), prayer and fasting. These are areas which are to have a place in the life of a believer, but they are also areas which can be a pitfall for the faithful. The reason these three areas can be a pitfall is because of their tendency to be abused and used to glorify the actor and not God.
