Don’t Hesitate To Give

24 One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. ~ Proverbs 11:24

Many of us walk past beggars on the street and don’t even consider giving them a dollar or two. When asked about rounding up our bill at check out and donating it to a children’s hospital or another nonprofit organization, we decline. A lot of us have become stingy with our money. Many of us say it’s because you can’t trust people, and the homeless will probably spend it on drugs or alcohol, and the organization probably doesn’t actually help anyone. But what is a few cents or a dollar?

It’s not up to you what they do with the dollar or cents you give them; that’s not your place. Your place is to give in faith that they will use the money you’ve given them to help themselves/others. You can even pray over the money before you give it or as you’re giving it that it might be used for good and not evil. For all you know, that dollar or couple cents might just be the exact amount they need to change their lives or another’s. Yes, a dollar can change a life. Yes, a couple of cents can make a difference. If it does nothing but give someone hope, then how can you put a price on that? Sometimes hope is the very thing needed to save another’s life.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Don’t Hesitate To Give.
