In Matthew 6:2, we read,
“Therefore, when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and the streets, they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you. They have their reward.”
To make it plainer, be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.
Yet we glimpse into the givers’ lives for gain who find praises in being glorified in their TikTok kingdoms.
YouTube channels that reveal every crumb profiling their pain for notoriety.
It’s true in ministry; we share the work to receive help to keep on in the game, yet for some, they do it just for the fame.
The attention grabbers and celebrity seekers are not solely convicted to help build the community but egos.
Sharing little of the work indeed leaves us less important in the eyes of others, but God’s reward comes later for honoring His name.
The wait is longer, and the prize seems scarce, but obedience to Christ comes before the rest.
The Bible says that the needy shall not be forgotten, and those that place their hope in the Lord will be blessed.
May the Lord’s Spirit lead you in your giving, and the obedience to wait be the way you receive.
