I once thought that believing in God is believing in the Bible, we can’t believe in God without the Bible. A fortuitous meeting helped me realize my thought was wrong.

But when you do alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand does: That your alms may be in secret: and your Father which sees in secret himself shall reward you openly.
– Matthew 6:3-4
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
The Lordteaches us not to worry that others don’t know what good things we do, nor that God does not know. We should do all that we can to do things well. Because God searches all things and not a single person or thing in heaven and on earth is not in His eyes, let alone our thoughts and ideas. Just as God says, “God is silent, and has never appeared to us, yet His work has never stopped. He looks upon all lands, and commands all things, and beholds all the words and deeds of man. His management is conducted in steps and according to His plan. It proceeds silently, without dramatic effect…. ” Though we are not able to see or touch God, He knows all of our thoughts and observes our words and deeds. So, when we help or give alms to others, we should do before God rather than do before others to curry favor with them, nor should we refuse to do it by thinking that God does not know. Remember: Our heavenly Father is observing our hearts in secret!
