Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen.
I heard an interview with the president of a charitable agency tell of the many flattering techniques his organization uses to get people to donate. “People need to get fed,” he said. “Whatever I can do to help them get fed, I will do it.”
I wonder why we have such difficulty understanding that God doesn’t need us to bring about any good results. We are not His hands, unless, in sincerity of heart, we choose to be His hands. Otherwise ravens can do just as well as distributors of food.
