Jesus tells us to avoid all forms of hypocrisy. We begin by recognizing all that we have comes from God. Humility also helps as we must ensure that we do the right things for the right reasons, whether in daylight or darkness, in the company of others or alone. Thus we should not seek worldly praise for our good deeds but strive only to please God. Heed the words of St. Augustine: If you should ask me what are the ways of God, I would tell you the first is humility; the second is humility; and the third is humility. If humility does not precede all that we do, our own efforts are fruitless. So today and always, walk humbly with your God.
