“So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
- Matthew 6:2-4 (NIV)
As some of you may know, I recently got an amazing job offer from an amazing company (Sogeti). This week, I got my first paycheck from my first "big girl" job. An exciting moment for sure. Since I was not use to such a large paycheck, I decided it's time to start tithing at church.
Well, this week . . something came up, so my tithe isn't going to church. Someone needed it, so I gave it to them instead of the church.
This is a very short post, but I wanted to let you know helping someone can change their day, their week, their life. Need some information on being bold? I wrote a post on that earlier this week. Helping out someone in need doesn't need to be monetary.
Do you have an elderly neighbor who needs their yard mowed? Someone who just had a loss and needs a shoulder to cry on? It's your time to reach out to them. Let them know you care.
