Lord, teach me to be generous,
To serve You as You deserve,
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to head the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
Save that of knowing that I do Your will.
-St. Ignatius of Loyola, “Prayer for Generosity”
Consider this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Moreover, God is able to make every grace abundant for you, so that in all things, always having all you need, you may have an abundance for every good work.
2 Corinthians 9: 6-8
