Topic: Morning Worship Service Passage: Matthew 6:2–6:4
"Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
Adam preaches Matt. 6:2-4. Christ continues to warn about hypocrisy in worship by illustrating several common areas of high risk. Giving must be done, yet it must be done without the slightest hint of self-promotion.
