1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before others, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father and Mother which are in heaven.I like the idea that Heavenly Mother blesses us as well.
2 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 people. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father and Mother which seeth in secret themselves shall reward thee openly.

I think most Christians keep the Sermon on the Mount close to their hearts. I usually study Matthew 5, but decided to skip over to chapter 6 today. Along with including Heavenly Mother, I changed "men" to "others" and "people."
