what we do in secret

"I tend to think that the most important parts of my life are what everyone sees. Sunday mornings, conferences, public events. I spend a lot of time preparing for times when I’m in front of people. I have a tendency to think that those times must have greater significance than what I’m doing when no one’s looking. Certainly God is watching more closely and more is accomplished for the kingdom when I’m leading huge crowds than when I’m by myself. Right?
As usual, Jesus cuts across the grain of my assumptions. What he said can revolutionize how I think about public ministry... God thinks what I do when no one else is watching is pretty important..."
