The actions show the reasons.

Then the righteous will answer him, saying, "Lord, when did we see you hungry, and gave you food, or thirsty, and gave you something to drink?" Matthew 25:37

It was the telethon as they do every year, where the media meet in a massive day; artists and other characters, to get huge donations for different social causes, thousands of volunteers with pots and boxes received donations of money, and even more amazing, thousands of people queued to give, businessmen came to the microphones and cameras and they made their donations in front of a public press conference, others came and made them feel like superheroes by donating millions of dollars for the event, and the telethon could get that year billions of dollars for the foundations that represented that year. This obviously was very good for the different social foundations benefited, but what we want to highlight here is not the donation, but that motivated the person to give such donations.  Doing good things does not always show the hidden purposes of the heart; that is, the reasons. However, God is not worth much actions but the motivation that lead to actions. That is why the same Lord Jesus highlighted the action of a very poor woman and also a widow who was in the church when it was time for the offerings, took two coins and placed them on the plate, Jesus saw her and said that this widow had given more than all those who were in the church that day, and this was illogical two cents more than a thousand dollars? Well, if the Lord valued it, because the widow did not give what was due, nor what was left over but gave everything she had for the sustenance of that day, that is to say that with her action (of giving) she showed her reasons to give (trust and dependence on God) Your charitable works are nothing without the correct motivation, God is not interested in your offering, but your heart and if your heart has the right motivation then the external; your actions will reflect what moves you to give, to serve and act. If until now you have done things just to be seen that does not count before God, in fact it is an offense to God, because it does not come from a genuine motivation or from a sincere heart, but it is just another donation. But nevertheless when your offering, your action, your walk comes as a result of the right motives, for God that action will be recorded in the book of life as a good done to the same Lord; "When the King answers, he will say to them, "Truly, I say to you, as soon as you did it to one of these my brothers, even to the least of them, you did it to me."
