“Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father.” (MT 6: 1)
Our “righteous deeds” offered to our spouses also can have the “secret motive”—not to show how much we love them, but to “invest,” expecting something similar from her or him. True love and true righteous deeds are always oriented to communicate our love, not our actions.
“Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him and we will come to him.” (Gospel Acclamation)
