[/i]For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. (I Timothy 6:10 NIV)[i] ‘Money is the root of all evil’ – isn’t it? Actually, no. It’s in the love of money that evil finds a root. If financial giving has become a taboo subject for you, face it head on today. Give financially. Whether you've got pennies or millions, there is great joy and freedom in thoughtful and intentional giving. You might be a regular giver or never have given before: use today as a way to explore your capacity for financial generosity. I'm only going to list the one option: If times are hard at the moment, spend today in thought. Challenge yourself to look honestly at your giving attitudes: do you view it as 'your money', or God's? How much would you like to be able to give, if you could? What causes would you give to? Pray about those things. If you find that you have a little loose change that accumulates each day, why not start a Giving Jar? When it's full, you can choose who to give it to.

It is good to give , there is that phrase I have heard for years "it is better to give than it is to receive".

It also falls under the category of "do unto others as you would have them do for you", which is what I try to live by.
