Don’t Be A Hypocrite

“When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites, who love to pray standing in the synagogues and on street corners, so that people can see them. Yes! I tell you, they have their reward already” (Matthew 6:5)

The word translated from the Greek for hypocrite means an actor.  This word, which is frequently used in Scripture, denotes one who either pretends to be what he is not (as here), or masquerades what he really is. People like that put on an act, which is designed only to glorify them.
