Misguided Motivation

What seems to be generosity is often no more than disguised ambition, which overlooks a small interest in order to secure a great one.  -Francois de La Rochefoucauld

We can do right things for the wrong reasons.  If you flaunt your giving to look like you’re generous and inform everybody each time you serve—then your motivation is misguided.  Don’t look for a reward from men; your reward will come from the Lord.  Every time you give, each time you serve, God sees you and He’ll abundantly bless you. 

But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing (Matt. 6:3, NLT).
