Scripture Session: Give in Secret

Matthew 6:3-4 NIV

But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

The scripture is instructing believers to not look for public praise when they are giving to others.  Some folks will make sure a big announcement is made every time they give to charity.  They want others to tell them how great they are.  Consumed with likes, shares, and news coverage.  Meaning, they are doing good things for the credit and pat on the back instead of to truly help folks.  God would rather us keep our charity to ourselves and allow him to reward us.
