“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.”
Doing a random act of kindness has always been something that is encouraged; and it is also what the Lord would want us to do. But sometimes, there are people who do “acts of kindness” just so they could let everyone know that they helped someone for the sake of being praised or socially rewarded.
Real kindness comes from someone who would help a person in need without asking for anything in return. You can tell if a person is sincere in giving if he or she gives help to others quietly. You see, not everyone needs to know that you go out helping people who are in need. What matters is that, you chose to open your heart and help them.
People don’t need to know what you’re doing. Your reason for doing an act of kindness should be your willingness to help out, not to receive praise or become well known. Following God’s will is what’s important.
Dear Lord God, please guide us and give us the power to help people who are in need and to spread the faith and trust we have for You. You have been giving us so much love, kindness, and blessings and we want people to know what real kindness is, that it all started and came from You. Amen.
