1 Corinthians 13:3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
One thing I have learned from living on an estate with ‘real people’ is you have to be real amongst real people! You cannot hide behind pretence or behind boastings!
God does not want people who go out of their way to show how good they are and how successful they are. God wants silent, genuine givers.
If we big up ourselves or our teams, we are gaining recognition and making others focus on us instead of focusing on the needy and poor!
