In today's Gospel reading from Matthew 6 at Mass, Jesus gave us teachings on almsgiving, prayer, and fasting. In essence, we must not let our ego turn us into hypocrites. It is the ego that makes us want to be seen, known, and recognized. When we want others to notice us and not God, we lose peace. To let others see Christ in us, we must be meek and humble like him. If you are sincere about wanting God to be No. 1 in your life, ask him to take away, in fact, annihilate, your ego first.
