Here are the audio and notes from Sunday mornings message. Sorry it has taken me a few days, but I haven't had much of a chance to post anything. Here is the description from Matthew 6:1-4:
Which is easier: to play the righteous man or to be the righteous man? There are many in our churches who great actors, but hypocritical believers. Many of us are playacting, assuming a role to impress an audience. Jesus doesn't fall the mask and has condemned it. He begins by looking how Christian impostors give and how true Christians ought to give. Righteousness is rooted not just in our actions, but in our motivations for those actions and that is clearly revealed in our heart for charity.
