I heard someone say at Church " I just donated the money for a new sound system "and it is going to be a great sound system. I have heard comments many times about what " I " have done for the church. Someone donated money to repair the Church Bus. Someone is going to have the lead singers part in the church choir at a special presentation. Someone else is starting a new Sunday School Class and it will be a wonderful blessing to our church. All these things are wonderful. It is great to see Christians leading the way in donations and talents to serve the church. Everyone should know about all these things and thank those people for their contributions. However, it is not proper to talk about these things to gleen praise from other members. Other church members will know all about what you did for the church. More important, God will know. God will reward you for your work in His church. Self promotion isn't important to God. We need to live for God not for the personal self promotion amoung our peers. God sees everything and rewards us as we deserve.
