The Lord tells us that whatever good you do, don’t let the right hand know what the left is doing. In other words, keep it secret. Isn’t that his way of doing things? When he answers one of my prayers, isn’t it a month of Sundays before I am aware of it?
When I send an online charity a donation, I have to let them know not to send me a thank you note, because then Loretta will find out (she usually opens the mail) and I’ll have all hell to pay for squandering our finitude.
But I’m not a spendthrift; I just see the practical application of biblical advice. That’s one of the reasons I’m doing so well — so far.
