If we do things simply for the appreciation they bring to ourselves,
then we are doing them for the wrong reasons. It’s a sad thing that
some people need attention and acceptance so much that they
give it to themselves rather than allowing others to give it to them.
We should give our gifts and talents because it is pleasing to
God. God has given us many fine abilities and it is important
that we remember to use them for His Service and for His
Glory not caring whether, we receive praise or not. Giving
For the right reasons bring great rewards from God.
Read: Matthew 5:16
