I was recently browsing the sermon of Jesus in Matthew 6, and thought it was interesting that he started this particular section by saying “when you do ‘acts of righteousness'”. It was not “if you do”, or when you talk about doing, but when you do! There’s an obvious expectation from this guy that we will do. He goes on to mention giving, fasting and praying and sets up a whole different set of guidelines to follow when you do those things.
So interesting that he obviously expects that we will be doers!
How about you?
