Matthew 6:1-4

1 Passage: Matthew 6:1-4

1 Verse: Verse 3. "But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing"

1 Prayer:
Thank You, Father, for giving the riches of Your grace and love and mercy to us spiritually bankrupt people. You are our example of selfless giving. Please help us to follow. Teach us to be generous, cheerful givers to those who cannot repay. Forgive us for greedily grasping for profit-- in terms of advancing our own agendas or puffing up our pride or polishing our reputations -- in return for doing good and helping others. Show us how we may best give of ourselves to help those most in need.
