Jesus spoke before the multitude of people in Matthew 6:1,3,4: “Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven..But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly.” Jesus’ point was that at the time, the hypocrite leaders made a showy display when doing charitable deeds for the common folk to see. This was their reward.
