If all we had to do was give in alms,
How easy it would be to give at all,
We could go down the line of upturned palms
Then spend the day just hanging at the mall.
But each of us are different in our heart;
We don’t all have the means in wealth to give,
So let us do our best and do our part
To help each other up so we can live.
If you give ten percent of what you earn
Unto the Lord, you’ve made your tithe today,
But kindling starts the fire – to make it burn
Use everything you’ve got without delay.
Considering what Jesus sacrificed,
We should give all we have: our all, like Christ.
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart,
so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity:
for God loveth a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7 KJV
