It’s smart to save money. It’s even smarter to give money away—IF you give it wisely. God promises that “he who gives to the poor will never want” (Proverbs 28:27) and “the generous man will be prosperous” (Proverbs 11:25). Jesus Christ said ‘Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap good measure—pressed down, shaken together and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return,” Luke 6:38. But not all giving is prudent. The Bible warns that “he who gives to the rich will only come to poverty,” Proverbs 22:16. Therefore, do your charitable giving carefully.
