We often think of charity as an action. But I think of charity as a state of the heart. It is powerful; it is life changing; it includes the ability to see with new eyes and feel with a new heart. It includes the gift of seeing others as God sees them.

It is a “high definition” look into an immortal soul. The gift of charity enables the recipient to discern and to know the heart.
