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. 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. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Matthew 6: 2-4
Good deeds! Some strive to do these daily. It’s great to serve others and help someone. It makes you feel good. But is that all it does? What are your motives? Do you do it with love?
Some do it specifically for the kudos, the pats on the back or how it makes them look to others. These are not the rewards we should be pleased with. God has many rewards in store for us IF WE HONOR HIM IN ALL THINGS. We should not do good deeds so the light can shine on us, but on GOD. Do it with Love. God is love. Make a difference by doing good deeds, no matter what they are, in love. Without love, your action is truly void.
Amen. The end.
