In other words,
do not do your good deeds for the PURPOSE
of wanting to be adored by your neighbors as such
a great guy. Don’t WANT to be known as being
"all that and a bag of chips."
Do your good deeds from a pure heart,
and if people thank you, graciously say “you are more than welcome,” but don’t do like some billionaires do, for whom
$50,000 is pocket change, and stage a PRESS CONFERENCE
to be shown giving a $50,000 check to a diabetes charity.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHH, isn’t that rock star NICE???
He gave $50,000 for a charity !!!
Well yes, but compared to his resources, he gave less percentage-wise
than the poor woman who put only two little copper coins into the Temple treasuty, and Jesus praised her to the hilt for it.
