Matthew 6:1-4

Take care not to do your good works before men, to be seen by them; or you will have no reward from your Father in heaven. When then you give money to the poor, do not make a noise about it, as the false-hearted men do in the Synagogues and in the streets, so that they may have glory from men. Truly, I say to you, They have their reward. But when you give money, let not your left hand see what your right hand does: read more.
So that your giving may be in secret; and your Father, who sees in secret, will give you your reward.

2 Corinthians 9:6-7
