John 5:34; Matthew 6:1-2; 1 Thessalonians 2:6

34 Not that lthe testimony that I receive is from man, but I say these things so that you may be saved.


Giving to the Needy

Beware of rpracticing your righteousness before other people in order sto be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven.

tThus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may ube praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have vreceived their reward.


uNor did we seek glory from people, whether from you or from others, vthough we could have made wdemands as xapostles of Christ.
