When you question how much of your income should be spent on helping the needy, remember this promise: “God loves the person who gives cheerfully. And God will generously provide all your need”(2 Cor 9:7-8). Charity is where faith and action create a beautiful connection. Regardless of our income, when we give of ourselves and our money we can sometimes worry about giving too much.
If we see our earnings or wealth and blessings as a pie, then any sharing of that pie will lessen our own portion, however if we see charity as a circle that expands to embrace all that we give, and even gives back to us manifold, then we are able to give generously.
Generosity is not measured by the size of the gift itself but by the motivation. In a Bible story, we see how Jesus valued the small offering of this poor widow over the large sums of money from wealthy people. Jesus knew that she had given all that she had. He could see that her heart was in the right place.
As kind as as she is, Tracy Boakye Affectionately called 'East Legon Landlady' has given some cash to these ladies at her residence. She happily handed over a cash of $2500 to these lady. They in turn appreciated her magnanimity and asked for God's blessings for her.
