Matthew 6:5 - 6:8

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In a discussion of the Sermon on the Mount, Steve Gregg examines Jesus' instructions on prayer in Matthew 6:5-8. Jesus warns against hypocrisy and suggests that public prayer should not be used as a platform for attention-seeking. Gregg suggests that while Jesus emphasizes sincerity and personal connection with God, he does not necessarily expect secretive prayers. Additionally, Gregg notes that while the length of a prayer is not the most important factor, consistent and attentive communication with God is essential for a strong relationship with Him.
