The Christian charity is that of giving.  Giving of our resources, time and money.  God loves a “cheerful giver”.   How can we be cheerful when our resources are scarce, there is not enough time in the day to get done what we have to get done and money, well – will we ever have enough?  Giving is having compassion on the poor when many of us feel poor ourselves.  Poor not just financially but spiritually; the weak, those who are fighting a battle also.  We all fight battles, they are just different.  My weakness, may be your strong point.  Your strong point, your strengths, are what God gave you.  2 Corinthians 8:13-14 “For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened: But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want…”.   As Christians we give to show our sincerity.  We are not weak, we are humble.  We are humble because we know without God giving us His Son Jesus Christ, we would in fact be weak.  We are bold and courageous.  We now have authority over all that comes against us because of Jesus and the Cross.  As Christians, we have been given God’s Grace.  God’s grace is our strength.  God’s grace is not just given to us; it is for us to share with others.  We glorify God when we give to others.  Giving is grace, never hoard your grace.  – Donna Warren
