They have received their reward.

“Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward.” (MT 6: 2)

We know from our Program that sometimes things we do are not coming from a good intention, but to find a compromise (to harmonize egoisms). It looks similar because the execution is actually the same. But the real difference is in purpose and intention. Instead of being united in three elements (God loves the Trinity): meaning, intention, and execution, we have only performance, which matches us. Like today’s Gospel—execution in praying, almsgiving, and fasting doesn’t have the right purpose and intention (i.e., goal: being recognized as a holy person, intention: I am better than you).

“If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts.” ((Verse before the Gospel)
