Let The Bible Speak: Alms Giving
1 "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.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 BUT WHEN THOU DOEST ALMS, LET NOT THY LEFT HAND KNOW WHAT THY RIGHT HAND DOETH:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly."
As a true born again, holiness, righteousness and rapture conscious Christian, especially as a married man or woman, how will you explain/interpret the passage of the scripture above, particularly verse 3?
God bless you all for your answers in advance.
1 Corinthians 12:28 "And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, HELPS, governments, diversities of tongues."
