Money

". . . see that you . . . excel in this grace of giving." (2 Cor. 8:7 TNIV)
"If our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusements, etc., is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little. If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot because our charitable expenditure excludes them." C.S. Lewis

"Find out how much God has given you and take from it what you need; the remainder is needed by others." Augustine of Hippo
