Charity Quotes (5th week of August)

A little study helped us find a bunch of verses about giving just to help us get our hearts back to where they needed to be. These are about 25 Verses of the more popular giving Bible verses, we will run them daily till the week of the poor commences – feel free to add a few others to the comments and share everywhere you can to touch a free giving soul…
Welcome to the Month of September 2017!!!

Deuteronomy 15:10
Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.
