Which Two Things Does God Want Us to Be Secretive About?

Prayer and Giving.

Our Heavenly Father wants us to individually pray to Him in secret, and not to make a public show of praying in public.

Also, God wants us to give to the poor and needy in secret, not letting one hand know what the other is doing.

Yet, these are two things that people often want to do most publicly.

But God says to do these two things in secret.
