Matthew 6:1–4


6 “Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

2 “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.


One thought:

When we give for other (humans) to see, we are actually serving ourselves and not others.


Three questions:

What would this look like today?


Do you do this?


How could you give something away today without anyone knowing?



Praise God that He is entitled to all glory and honour. Give thanks that Jesus Christ was given to us in grace. Ask God to help you + someone else seek God’s glory and not your own as you generously give.
