When spirituality is connected with generosity the end results are beautiful. Entire communities are blessed, the local church is well equipped, and the Christian giver glorifies God who delights in our willingness to give toward the needs of others and to depend deeply upon Him. (2 Corinthians 9:7; Malachi 3:10)
