Humble Generosity

Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.

Matthew 6:2

God’s people ought to give purposefully and give faithfully to the glory God. This simple message permeates Matthew 6:2 and is part and parcel of Christ’s message here. We are not to announce our benevolence or sound the trumpet for others to see. God is to be glorified by our giving.

Giving is an act of worship. We give to show our thanksgiving, our faith in God’s provision, and our praise for all He has done. May God be glorified in our charity in every circumstance.

Those who give to be seen of men have their reward. Human rewards are temporary in nature and they do not last. It is far better to have God’s reward in these matters.
