Be careful when you get too wrapped up in tooting your own horn.
Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”And he took the children in his arms,placed his hands on them and blessed them. (Mark 10:13-16)
The grace of the Lord is open to all people, from the little children to all ages. God has revealed his identity and wisdom in the bible through people called prophets…
