"When you give to the poor," Jesus said, "don't let anyone know what you are doing. Your giving should be done in secret. Your Father can see what is done in secret, and he will reward you" (Matthew 6:3, 4). Jesus wasn't teaching that acts of kindness should always be kept secret. Jesus meant that they should not be done to impress others.
Jesus' followers bring glory to Him with their kindness and generosity. Every such act is done by the influence of the Holy Spirit and brings glory to God. When the light of Christ is shining in our souls, our lips will praise and thank God. It won't be our efforts, or our selflessness that we'll be thinking about. Jesus will be at the center of our thoughts.
