**Living for God in Secret

        If money is the root of all evil, then ego is the biggest cause of our unhappiness. In today's Gospel reading from Matthew 6, Jesus said to his disciples: "Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father." In other words, we are to live for God alone in secret and never for ourselves. The is the secret of shedding our ego and attaining inner peace.
