Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you ,as the hypocrites do in the synagogues, and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly I say to you, they received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. So that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. I am truly guilty of this when I wrote here on this blog. Even though it wasn’t done as in boasting, still it shouldn’t have been done. Boasting can lead to pride and there in is the problem. My telling stories from this life should always give the glory to our God.
