“Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.”
King James Version (KJV)

1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt NOT be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is IN SECRET; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use NOT vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. (Sorta like 50 Hail Mary and Our Father, prayers?)
Mishael: The Lord wants us to pray from our hearts. Just as He wants us to give our offerings from our hearts; as unto God. That is often how missionaries work is funded; youth camps, etc.
We give our tithes to our Church that we attend, so they can pay the light bill, water bill, and church employees; maintenance stuff.
Trust me that God knows where every penny is and where it went.
He tells us: Do Not Judge. Why? Because He Alone is The Judge.
We commit our actions to Him, and He sorts out the details.
This is what's supposed to be in our hearts. Purity, Trust, and a knowing that our faithfulness will be rewarded, On Earth, When we most need it.
Pray in your own words, your thoughts, confess your doubts; repent of wrongs. Your conscience will always feel clean and un-clouded.

After you read MATTHEW chapter 6. Verse 1 through 7
Now that you've read exactly what Jesus said .
Do the preachers, teachers, ministers, and
Television evangelist do as Christ said? Or is that the Devil starring straight into your eyes preparing you for everlasting HELL .

Charity or helping other should be done in secret ,than it is accepted in the house of God.Otherwise you have got your reward by getting praises of the person being helped.

I love Matthew6:1, I believe that if you know who you are in Christ Jesus ,then you shouldn't have to'showboat' for anyone else. Besides God's Holy Word tell us that whatever we do, do unto The Lord. I love and don't mind helping others out, However ,I don't need to shout it from the roof top that I just did whatever I did for so and so
