Jesus taught about giving to the poor and needy. He warned against giving and waving a flag to make sure everybody sees it. The Jewish leaders were sounding a trumpet when they gave their tithes and offerings. It is our human nature to want everyone to see when we are giving to the church or doing a good deed, but the bible tells us that GOD hates that. We can overcome the old nature through the power of the Holy Spirit when we are saved and walking with GOD. As we grow closer to GOD the old nature grows weaker. When we give anything, money, ourselves, or anything else, we are just giving back what GOD has given to us. Actually we do not have anything to brag about, but we have much to be thankful for.
