Matthew 6:3-4

But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your 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.

I love this verse. It's easy for me to begin to love people with the motive of becoming their favorite, or being seen as a 'good girl' by others. But at the heart i do true want to bless others, and so i need to learn to not let my left hand know what my right hand is doing. That way he can't whisper to my pride.

I feel really bad, but I had to stop following some people, not because of your blog, but because I am following way to many. I have to, sorry.

I feel really bad.
