Compassion President and CEO Wess Stafford often says that you can’t outgive the poor. Pray that your sponsored child will grow in generosity and will be willing to share what he or she has with others who also are in need.
“Grant that my children may be generous and willing to share, and so lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age.”
“Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.” –1 Timothy 6:18-19, NIV
