"Love towards God cannot consist without charity towards neighbor." - William Ames
You are more than just a name, you are a person in the same way those around you are.
You are more then an income, skin color, education, or any other status title. You are a beloved creature and child of God.
The only thing that separates you from them is you. Not your money, ethnicity, or religious conviction.
The gift of life has been given graciously to everyone and so hoarding it is meaningless. Your blessings must be shared to truly appreciate who you are and what you have been called to do. Likewise, you must also be willing to accept that which is given to you.
Charity is not a handout but a kindness and a reminder of the gift that was given to you. Share it as God has shared it with you. That is to say, in abundance.
