Do we do good things so that other people will notice and give us credit? Or, are we satisfied with the fact that it goes unnoticed with the exception of God knowing. Do we give Him the credit in all things? Be sincere in what you do and how you treat others. Ask God to search your heart and not to allow a falseness to take over the way we present ourselves. This scripture is a great prayer,
Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Now this is our boast: Our conscience testifies that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially in our relations with you, with integrity and godly sincerity. We have done so, relying not on worldly wisdom but on God’s grace.
2 Corinthians 1:12
