Giving to the Needy

Matthew 6:1 - 4 (New Living Translation)

1. “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven.

2. When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth; they have received all the reward they will ever get.

3. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.

4. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.

When we give to anyone in NEED it should always occur in secret, and our God will award us openly. As the Word has already stated, if you make this known to everyone... you have received your reward. It’s that simple.

Blessings to all!
