Jesus continues His warnings about practicing righteousness to be noticed. While last week's message focused on giving to be noticed by others, this week's focused on praying to be noticed by others, as well as praying with meaningless repetition.
Jesus points out the hypocrisy of praying to be noticed by men and not God, and also points out the folly of praying meaningless jumble even in private before God.
In both cases, God calls His people to a righteousness that is not pretended, but genuine.
