What kind of reward are you seeking ?

It is sometimes irritating to watch people who only give of themselves when they are in public arenas always a crowd of onlookers to see all there good deeds.

Matthew 6:3-4 but when you give to the needy, do not let the left hand know what the right hand is doing. so that your giving may be in secret.Then your father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Matthew 23 2-7 The teachers of the law and the pharisees sit in moses seat. so you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.They tie up heavy loads and put them on mens shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
Everything they do is done for men to see. They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long: they love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have men call them Rabbi and the entire 23rd chapter
