Theology and ethics: Jesus has discussed at length the need for undivided loyalty. One may find an earthly reward for what one does, or may be rewarded by God. One must choose his master, but it is God who provides everything one needs. The challenge for the disciple is to serve God. His acts of righteousness include almsgiving, prayer and fasting, but—above all—his life is marked by an active search and a striving to keep God’s Kingdom and God’s righteousness first. ……….
