"Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit." Philippians 2:3a
"Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven." Matthew 6:1
"When you pray, go into your room… your Father sees what is done in secret." Matthew 6:6
“Anonymity is not our thing. Recognition, accolades and the limelight are. We want people to know just how generous, smart, successful and popular we are. But we don’t want to appear to be a braggart, so we come up with subtle and socially approved ways of promoting ourselves and our image. We give money to causes where our name gets out. We name drop about who we know. We let slip how and where we volunteer. Every good deed we do sees the light of day. And every juicy secret we know comes out in our next conversation.” Adele Calhoun
