when helping people.

The bread in your cupboard belongs to the hungry person,
the coat hanging unused in your closet belongs to the one who needs it,
the shoes rotting in your closet belong to the one who has no shoes,
the money which you hoard away belongs to the poor.

Basil the Great

Of what use is it to weigh down Christ’s table with golden cups,
when he himself is dying of hunger?

First, fill him when he is hungry;
then use the means you have left to adorn his table.

Will you have a golden cup made but not give a cup of water?

Do not, therefore, adorn the church and ignore your afflicted brother,
for he is the most precious temple of all.

John Chrysostom

We make a living by what we get,
But we make a life by what we give.

The more you have the less you can give,
and the less you have the more you can give.
