Almsgiving: Day 1
“Thus, when you give alms, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your alms may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” (Matthew 6:2-4)
Intentions: That we may be prudently generous with both our money and time; that we may give without regard for our reputation.
Action: Examine your motives in giving of your money, your time, and your effort. Strive for purity in every action, recognizing that all you have is the Lord’s.
