ALL OUR HEART BUT NOT BOTH OUR HANDS
REFLECTION QUESTION: Am I noisy about my good deeds?
Lord, give me a generous heart but help me to be silent about it. Amen.
St. Silverius, pope martyr, pray for us.Give with all our heart, but do not give with both our hands. Sounds weird, huh? But that s what Jesus is trying to tell us: “When you give alms, do not let your left hand know what our right hand is doing” (Matthew 6:3). Giving does not need both our hands. All it needs is all our heart. Give wholeheartedly – that alone is enough. The point is, be quiet about our good deeds. Otherwise, we may win the approval of many but lose God’s.God does not approve of us trumpeting our kindness towards others. Those who announce their enevolence are soon to be found nowhere when the applause of the crowd dies down. In such a case, they are not really philanthropists but hypocrites. God hates hypocrisy more than anything.
Learn the art of silence. It is the utterance of the heart where our true motives cannot be hidden. Fr. Bobby T.
