Giving isn't about the volume, it's about your heart. Jesus once commended a faithful woman who gave what was considered very little. But Jesus recognized it as being much.

Luke 21:4 (New Living Translation)

4 "For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has."

God doesn't want us to give as a duty. We ought to give as we can.

2 Corinthians 8:12 (NLT)

12 Whatever you give is acceptable if you give it eagerly. And give according to what you have, not what you don't have.

Ultimately, giving benefits not just others, but us as well.

Proverbs 11:25 (NLT)

25 The generous will prosper;
those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

Life is about giving--not as a duty, but as a joy. And that joy overflows into all aspects of our lives.
