Years ago, while sitting in a church parking lot, I was approached by a lady who appeared homeless. Normally, if someone asks for money I try to discover what their real need is and offer to get them food rather than give cash.
This particular morning, however, I didn't want to invest the time it would take to handle the situation properly. So out of expediency I gave her cash. To my dismay, moments later, she walked by with a bottle of wine.
King David in 1 Chronicles 29:17 provided some wisdom about our generosity. He taught, "I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity. All these things have I given willingly and with honest intent."
Generosity with honest intent is God's preferred method.
