Are charitable contributions given to relieve the poor. Give in secret, God will reward you openly (Matt. 6:1-4). When you give to the poor, you lend to the Lord and He will repay you (Prov. 19:17). Giving to the poor causes you to be deliveredin your time of trouble (Ps. 41:1). You shall not lack (Prov. 28:27). "He that hat a bountiful eye shallbe blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor" (Prov. 22:9).
