Do you have a cause that you support? Something that touches your heart, you can't get it out of your mind, you just have to help. Even if it hurts? It's what I've been taught,
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
I didn't learn this concept until I hit hard times, and honestly there are still struggles. Giving when it doesn't feel good is an act of faith. If you truly believe that everything you have on this earth belongs to God then what do you care? As a side note - it feels awfully nice to pass it along to someone that needs it too, knowing that you'll receive it back - tenfold.
I hope that this isn't coming across as self-righteous, I just want to share this knowledge with those of you who may be struggling financially. Give. Give when it hurts. Pray over it. God knows what you're going through, give and turn your to trust in Him.
