Tithing can be a wonderful discipline that leads one to God, but it can never be at the expense of charity. If a gift is given begrudgingly, then it is no gift at all.

May I have the strength to love and serve others not only because of who they are, but also because of who I am. May my deeds reflect my heart.

O Holy Spirit, grant me integrity. May my deeds of charity disclose a heart of a beloved child of God who seeks to love others in return.
