Giving Tip #2-- Be Friendly
Even if we were giving a million dollars to someone, it is ruined if we treat the person we are giving it without respect. We should be friendly to those we give to and so make the gift fully charitable. No matter how the giving meets a need, a grudging, unfriendly gift is never welcome. But to be kind to a stranger, not just giving, shows that we love them.
