2 Corinthians 9:11-12
11 You will be enriched in every way, so that you can be generous in everything. And through us your generosity will cause people to thank God, 12 because rendering this holy service not only provides for the needs of God’s people, but it also overflows in the many thanks people will be giving to God.
Never really dwelt on charity as opening the door to bring someone to salvation, but then again why would someone listen to what I had to say if I didn’t care about their physical needs. Food in their belly and clothes on their backs leads to open and receiving hearts.
