He moves past the actions to the motivation. ·Disciples give to the needy. o This is not limited to tithing: it goes beyond tithing. o Christians must be concerned with the physical needs of those around them as well as the spiritual needs. It is not either/or. ·Disciples give because they recognize the greater reward. o Jesus is shameless in giving the motivation for the way the disciples “practice their righteousness”: it is for the reward that they will receive in heaven. o The Pharisees do not see that their reward is foolish compared to the reward of God. Disciples are aware of this.
