It is sad to see what some people understand by almsgiving: a few pennies or some old clothes. They seem not to have read the Gospel.
Don't be over-cautious: help people to acquire sufficient faith and fortitude to be ready to deny themselves generously, in this life, what they need.
To those who lag behind, explain that it is neither very noble nor very agreeable, even from an earthly point of view, to wait for the last moment, when they will be obliged to take nothing with them.
– St. Josemaria Escriva, Furrow, #26
