A Spectator Sport?

Jesus said, “Beware of practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them; for then you have no reward from your Father in heaven” (Matthew 6.1).


When my good deed – the taking up of love’s risk or the taking hold of a just responsibility – requires an audience (even if only my mirrored reflection), then, I wonder, how good is it?

On immediate second-thought, my very question anticipates my answer.
