Whatever good we accomplish is God’s doing in us. And we don’t have to trumpet it about. As Jesus said, “So whenever you give alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the  synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be praised by others” (Matthew 6:2).

“Act, and God will act, work and He will work.”
