Generosity is a function of the heart, not the wallet. (Wayne Dyer, late self-help author)

“You may have convinced yourself that giving is impossible because you have too little for yourself. If you are not generous when it is difficult, you will not be generous when it is easy.” We’re told that surveys reveal that people with less often give to charities more generously than those with more. Learning to be generous will not only help others, it will give you joy.

Since you excel in so many ways . . . I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving. (2 Corinthians 8:7)
