Emmanuel From the book Our daily bread

Received in the city of Pedro Leopoldo – Brazil, February 22, 1950 by Chico Xavier

The  Gospel According to Spiritism - Do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.

…True charity is sensitive and skillful in concealing the benefit rendered and in avoiding the least harmful appearances, since any moral offense adds to the suffering born from need. This sort of charity is able to find kind and affable words that put beneficiaries at ease in the presence of their benefactors, whereas prideful charity crushes them. The sublime aspect of true generosity is present when benefactors switch roles and find a way for they themselves to appear to be the actual beneficiaries of those to whom they render their service. That is the meaning of the words, “do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing.”
