Art of Giving, How to Donate
A good samaritan gift (alms) to your church,
food bank, ministry, outreach, or a needy neighbor will be a blessing to you and them.
A gift of what you have, money, food, time, or material will go far to help them.

FYI: In the above example, the
original Greek words are present in each definition with blue. For those
who are not familiar with translations, dialect is prominent between different
languages. A word may mean several words in one language, and is written
with several words to translate it, and vis-a-versa. The blue colored words
are the original. Bible Assist Software uses the King James Bible of 1769.
