Our call is to help people without drawing attention to ourselves
Many ministers (including me) are often tempted to show how I have been a benefactor to the needy. I want the world to know how with great signs and wonders I have been instrumental to healing so many people. In doing so, I may have profited from my noble exploits. But for what price?…
The true blessing of heaven, the full glory of Christ. Many charity organisations and NGO’s are guilty of making use of the poor to attract funds and raise their own profile. Because their intentions are not pure, such organisations will in no uncertain terms be judged for their unscrupulous and shameless shenanigans.
As members and leaders of churches and charity organisations, our call is to help people without drawing attention to ourselves. The one who exalts us is God. The approvals of men count for nothing. Our true effectiveness is not measured by the size of our ministry but by the number of lives we have blessed without strings attached.
By keeping our good works under wraps, our Father who sees what is done in secret will reward us (see Matthew 6:3).
So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full. Matthew 6:2
