Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. 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. But when you give to someone in need, (be very covert) don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you."
