God, who sees in secret

Donald Trump often gets a lot of bad press, but one story tells of how he was driving home from a weekend trip and his luxury car broke down on a very busy freeway. An unemployed mechanic stopped to help, got his car going again and then refused to accept any payment. But Trump, who refused to confirm or deny the story, next day sent flowers to the mechanic’s wife, along with a certified letter stating that their mortgage had been paid in full. That Good Samaritan – motor mechanic still thanks his lucky stars that he followed his Christian principles and helped a fellow motorist in trouble.
Even though thoughts of reward should not be the motivating factor in our desire to help people in need, the Bible does say that ‘God, who sees in secret, shall reward us openly.’
