10 Unforgettable Quotes on Giving

“Money is like love; it kills slowly and painfully the one who withholds it, and enlivens the other who turns it on his fellow man.”

– Kahlil Gibran

“I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusements, etc., is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little. If our charities do not at all pinch or hamper us, I should say they are too small. There ought to be things we should like to do and cannot do because our charities expenditure excludes them.”

– C.S. Lewis

“Make all you can, save all you can, give all you can.”

– John Wesley

“Giving with glad and generous hearts has a way of routing out the tough old miser within us. Even the poor need to know that they can give. Just the very act of letting go of money, or some other treasure, does something within us. It destroys the demon greed.”

“Hold everything in your hands lightly, otherwise it hurts when God pries your fingers open.”

– Corrie Ten Boom

“Let us give up our work, our plans, ourselves, our lives, our loved ones, our influence, our all, right into God’s hand; and then, when we have given all to Him, there will be nothing left for us to be troubled about.”

– Hudson Taylor

“As base a thing as money often is, yet it can be transmuted into everlasting treasure. It can be converted into food for the hungry and clothing for the poor.

Whatever is given to Christ is immediately touched with immortality.”

– A.W. Tozer

“No one has ever become poor from giving.”
