In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus turns His attention to the “religious” people of the day. He speaks of how to care for the needy, prayer, fasting, and future planning. In His teaching, Jesus speaks directly to us as well - am I religious, someone who follows Jesus, or both? Matthew 6:1-4; 1 Timothy 6:17-19. What is an “act of righteousness”? Why would someone want to be seen performing such an act? What are heavenly rewards?
