50 Things: Charity

19 Jan

At first my mind went right back to my sympathy post.

Giving to someone else = feeling sympathy for them?


generous actions or donations to aid the poor, ill, or helpless: to devote one’s life to charity.

something given to a person or persons in need; alms: She asked for work, not charity.

a charitable act or work.

a charitable fund, foundation, or institution: He left his estate to a charity.
benevolent feeling, especially toward those in need or indisfavor: She looked so poor that we fed her out of charity.
What I take from that is this: giving what you have, to someone who needs it.  Tithing is giving 10% of your income to the church, because A. Anything you make is by the grace of God. And B., because God will help you through all financial trials you may come up against while not having that 10%.  The point is to trust that God will see you though anything.
Give because you can, not because you should.
Give because you want to, not because you have to.
