Matthew 6:1 “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven.

In the age of social media, people post about everything. What they eat, drink, where they sleep, and where they go. That’s fine and all, but when it comes to posting ourselves giving to or serving the poor, we need to be mindful of our motives.

Videoing ourselves giving to or serving the poor can inspire others to do the same. It can remind people that there are other people out there who need our help. However, if our motives are to show how much extra money we have or we’re trying to impress others by showing how charitable we are, we’ll miss our reward.

God’s reward is far better than the applause of people. Take this into consideration as we serve those in need.
