In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus talked about three practices we call spiritual disciplines — giving, praying, and fasting (Matt. 6:1-18). He not only told us the right way to engage in spiritual disciplines but also how that way yields the right kind of reward.
Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven. (Matt. 6:1)
Think about the kind of reward you want for engaging in the spiritual disciplines.
Do you want the short-lived, shallow, and subjective applause of others for what you have done or the eternal, worthwhile reward from God?
The Getting Spiritually Fit Discipleship Tool briefly considers how there is no better reward than what we get from Him when we take the right approach to spiritual disciplines.
