Take care not to do your good works before men, to be seen by them; or you will have no reward from your Father[1]in heaven. When then you give money to the poor, do not make a noise about it, as the false-hearted men do in the Synagogues and in the streets, so that they may have glory from men. Truly, I say to you, They have their reward. (Matthew, 6:1-2)

[1]. The word “Father” on such occasions is metaphorically used for God. (Compiler)
