Is it possible to do good things for bad reasons? Yes, it is. When a person is focused on the attention and praise they get for helping others, God is not impressed. Those who live for the praise of others are only pretending to be Christians.
But when a person shows genuine kindness to another, the praise goes to God. In fact, Jesus' words indicate that there is a double blessing in a good deed, one not just for the person who is helped but also for the person who does the helping. And every time we help someone in need, we grow closer to Jesus and more like Him.
