Doing Good

Why give without letting another know?
Others would think bad thoughts
Giving is an expectation
Giving also builds a reputation

What does the left hand know?
How can one hand be ignorant of the other?
What good deeds are done with only a small part of self?
What if the two hands work together?

Do trumpets announce good deeds?
Who could imagine such an declaration?
Would a banquette be less pretentious?
What would a wealthy man do if he could not give publicly?

Why can’t a person be good publicly?
Are not some of higher quality than others?
Why would the superior pretend to be equals?
Why not offer proof of the superiority?

Jesus talks and the crowds listen
Wondering that he condemns the ways of the world
