“Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.”
From Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 6:1-4.
Do good to please God. Make sure that He gets the glory. Curb your human tendency to be recognized for doing good. Do not look for human commendation. Let God, Whom you are glorifying, reward you. ✞
