"Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father." (Mt 6:1)
Jesus tells us to think about our motivation in doing good things. Do we pray and do a work of charity to be praised by others? Let us act in a holy way to grow close to God, and for Him alone seeing our good actions.
