Freely give, quietly

"... Freely you have received, freely give." -Matthew 10:8

"So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full." - Matthew 6:2

Even (especially) when it means no one recognizes your giving.
Even (especially) when you haven't been told 'thanks'.
Even (especially) when you don't really want to.
Even (especially) when you have been doing it a long time.
Even (especially) when no one shows appreciation.
Even (especially) when it furthers God's Kingdom and satan wants a word with you about it.
