Charitable Giving – Tzedakah

It is the giver who is the true receiver, and the receiver that is the genuine giver… Our sharing actually benefits ourselves even more than the person with whom we share.

The true secret to riches is charity. By increasing charitable contributions you increase the down-flow of Divine energy into this world. Giving creates the receptacle for receiving. Charity is the core of all the commandments and it surpasses them all. Giving from the toil of your hands is the love of friends as your self, rich and poor in one bound.

If you don’t care about money, you don’t care about charity.
If money is the root of all evil, how easily it’s uprooted trough charity.

You are in the image and likeness of God, this is why giving feels good and being in need feels bad because it makes you dissimilar to who you truly are, a giver. When you receive in order to delight God, the act is giving and bound to God. Desire to receive in order to delight God. Desire to receive in order to share. This keeps you in the image and likeness of God, by being in the attribute of bestowal.

Receive as much as you can, in order to share as much as you can.
