If we'd been doing this through the last century, we might not be fighting the battle over entitlement spending and healthcare in this country right now.

I agree, with the caveat that the money has to be given to organizations that will use it in a way that is most helpful (long range) to those in need.

Inspired by you we have been giving 10% of gross income away the past few years. We have not felt pinched by doing so. Thank you for your inspiration.

Do you really mean all Christians -including the "poor, hurting, and disadvantaged" ones, (however defined) should be giving to these causes, too?

Brian --

Yes, I believe that every should give something and everyone has something to give.

Agree with the original post and the last comment as well.

Giving blesses the giver more than the recipient, and everyone needs to know the joy of giving.

Brian -
Yeah, it's a hard pill to swallow sometimes. I just figure that I'll finally be able to have a home of my own in the afterlife. It certainly isn't going to happen here and now.

How about 10% or more of your time, and/or money in various proportions helping the poor, sick, despondent, and needy? Does that count, too?

James --

I don't think time is a replacement for giving, but a supplement to it.
