We will have at death a very distinct light on all that we have done, and on all that we should have done. We shall see clearly the use which we should have made of the graces we have received, the talents, the wealth, the health, the time, and all the advantages of misfortunes of our life.
~ Fenelon, in Christian Perfection
I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all. But whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.
~ Martin Luther
How different our standard is from Christ’s. We ask how much a man gives. He asks how much he keeps.
~ Andrew Murray
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
~ Bible, 2 Corinthians 9:7
Do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
~ Bible, Hebrews 13:16
