“Give generously to the poor, not grudgingly, for the lord your God will bless you in everything you do.” (Deuteronomy 15:10 NLT)
Charity, my friends!
Do you give to charity? What do you get in return? A nice certificate? A thank you letter maybe! A sticker for your jumper which will fall off in a couple of hours?
Well Moses says there is something much better. God’s blessing is waiting for you. Elsewhere in Deuteronomy, Moses talks about giving one tenth of your income, but that’s not necessarily for charity. No amount is specified. It’s between you and God.
So, give generously!
