We know in our heart of hearts that the best charity of all is the gift of our selves. When you give of your own time to help another, you are giving a part of your very life that is irreplaceable.
That is why the example of Mother Theresa resonates with everyone who knows her story.
Of course, our personal time is limited. There are only so many hours available that we can use to assist others.
For those of us who have accumulated goods and material wealth we want to be able to add or substitute gifts such as food, shelter and money to help others. On occasion we also want to be able to direct who receives our gifts.
We now need to find others who will distribute our giving on our behalf.
When we give we want our gift to be something true. We want our gifts and charity to be of real use to those who receive.
WHO: Whoever desires to worship God.
WHAT: Giving first 10% of income to God.
WHEN: Whenever you receive income.
WHERE: Where you have been fed the Word of God.
WHY: To worship God and to receive His blessings.
HOW: By faith, diligently, promptly, cheerfully.
“The earth belongs to God! Everything in all the world is His!”
“Give to every one that asks of you, and ask not again; for the Father wishes that from his own gifts there should be given to all. Blessed is he who gives according to the commandment, for he is free from guilt; but woe unto him that receive”.
True charity is anonymous. It begins and ends within your self. Please remember love is never one sided.
