What do we see in the NT?
Luke 6:38…give and it will be given back to you….
Luke 12:33-34…sell your possessions and give to the needy…moneybags that do not grow old…where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Acts 20:35…Jesus is quoted as saying it’s better to give than to receive.
2 Corinthians 9:6….sow sparingly, you reap sparingly…
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
