Rejected Kindness*

How you react to a rejected act of kindness is as important as the act of kindness. The Bible teaches us to give expecting nothing in return. When we expect kindness in return for our act of kindness, we have performed that kindness with the wrong motives. Jesus taught us to do our good deeds in secret and our Father in Heaven would do the rewarding.

Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. -Matthew 6:1-4
