You’re part of a highly trained elite commando unit and have just completed a top secret mission. You’ve successfully rescued hostages from a highly dangerous situation in the dead of night. But the world will never hear of your bravery.
Only God has spiritual “night vision goggles” that allows him to see what is done in secret for his kingdom (like prayer, generosity, fasting). Maybe people will never get to hear of your acts of love and sacrifice. But God loves it when you don’t draw attention to yourself. “Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you” (Matthew 6:4).
