Matthew 6:1-4

1 “Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven. 

2 “So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. 

3 “But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 

4 so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.
