Matthew 6:1 offers a general principle that serves as the foundation for the specific applications in vv. 2-18. To state this principle in v. 1 positively, true kingdom rigtheousness that pleases God the Father is done for his approval, not for human praise. "Therefore" in v. 2 signals the application this principle to the issue of almsgiving. Jesus warns against giving to impress people as the hypocrites do (v. 2) and instead calls disciples to secret giving that is seen (and rewarded) only by the Father. Likewise, the principle in v. 1 is applied to the issue of prayer in vv. 5-6, in the same negative-positive argument style. Do not pray like the hypocrites motivated by human esteem (v. 6), but pray secretly to be heard (and rewarded) by the Father.
