"Be careful not to do your acts of righteousness before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven." NIV
"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." KJV
Our natures cause us to want appreciation from others for the good deeds we do. The Lord tell us to not even discuss our good deeds with anyone, so avoiding spiritual pride. We know God will see the works that we do. The secret will remain with Him and He will give us our reward. We can choose our reward for doing good deeds. Reward from the Lord our God, in His time, or applause from men right now. We can't have both.
Heavenly Father, forgive us for letting others know of a good deed we did that You placed on our hearts. Forgive us for wanting that spiritual blessing now, from others. Help us to so trust You that we find it a blessing to wait on the reward You have for us. We pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.
