Are we supposed to let our good deeds be seen or do them in secret?

An excerpt from the message “For the Glory of God” on November 19th, 2017. Matthew chapters 5 & 6 seem to have conflicting messages as far as how we are to act as we try to follow Christ.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matt. 5:16).

“Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them” (Matt. 6:1).
