Waste From My Wealth

I share the waste from my wealth. I don’t miss anything with the gift that I give to the poor and needy. I give them from the scraps that fall from my financial plate and on to the floor. I give without noticing that it is missing. This kind of giving does not glorify God. It gets great notice from people, but really, it is just the waste from my wealth. It is superficial, not sacrificial. I brag about it. I take pride in it. But if it is painless, it is not sacrificial. If it costs me nothing, it is worthless. It is waste.

All these people gave gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty, put in all she had. Luke 21:4

Matthew 19:21 KJV “Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.”
