But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. (Matthew 6:3)



It is saddening to witness how social media has engulfed the hearts of many nowadays. People give just to show-off and garner “likes” in their posts.

They want the grandeur of audience because they want to be seen giving and waiting for an applause.

However, the Bible gave us a stern warning that giving should be kept in secret. This way, our reward will come from heaven and not from this world, which easily perish.

Next time you give, give in secret because the Lord surely sees what you do.


Lord help us to always check our hearts as we give. Truly, you love a cheerful giver. Help us to give with a clean and pure intentions, as we desire the reward that comes form you and reject the one that comes from this world.

Thank you for the fervent reminder.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.
