Jesus Teaches About Giving Alms

A lot of people could use some help. And as people who love God, we love to help those in need. It’s just what we do: we help lovingly. This month, let’s find ways to do good deeds for others without them even knowing who is doing the good deeds. It can be like our own secret mission.

In the Sermon on the Mount, we find Jesus giving us this idea:

When you do good deeds, don’t try to show off. If you do, you won’t get a reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to the poor, don’t blow a loud horn. That’s what show-offs do in the meeting places and on the street corners, because they are always looking for praise. I can assure you that they already have their reward. When you give to the poor, don’t let anyone know about it. Then your gift will be given in secret. Your Father knows what is done in secret, and he will reward you.” (Matt 6:1-4 CEV)

Another way of saying, “Don’t let anyone know about it” is to say, “Don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.” Our own hands can’t even know. It’s almost like we’re being spies for good: we are that secretive or quiet about it.

The Good Samaritan is a story we all know and love. But we can look at it in a different light. We also have two new stories that give us ideas on how we can help others without telling them. Enjoy the games, too, that help us focus Jesus’ words and message.

This is your mission if you choose to accept it. Enjoy!
