What are your hands doing?

I need to improve on charity. Sure I donate here and there to a good cause. I’ll help people here and there when I see a need. I even donate used clothes.

But let’s be honest.. who is that helping more? I get tax write offs and clean closets.

But let’s look at charity and charitable

I need to live with a charitable heart.

Full of love for and goodwill towards others. Not donating because I should or because I need a tax write off. There is so much more to being charitable than simply donating to a cause.

I need to change my mindset, my heart and my hands will follow.

Philippians 2:3-4 In whatever you do, don’t let selfishness or pride be your guide. Be humble, and honor others more than yourselves. Don’t be interested only in your own life, but care about the lives of others too.
