The striking thing about [Matthew] vv. 7-9 is that they reject worship as spurious on the basis of the ethic which is being promulgated: those who commend what God does not commend and fail to commend what he does commend are unable to offer acceptable worship to God.

John Nolland, The Gospel of Matthew, p. 619
