good deeds

I find it interesting that in the very same sermon, Jesus says

Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.


Be careful not to do your 'acts of righteousness' before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

O the subtleties of the Christian walk! So much of it is really about the motivations behind our actions, rather than simply the actions themselves.
