"Should our good deeds be private or public?" (Claim #E4022)
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
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.
A consistent Christian life should have both public and private deeds. Many should be private, especially to prevent self-glory, like giving gifts to help the poor. However, others will be public by nature, like witnessing for Christ, living morally pure, and obeying authority.
