Tithing (Sirach 35:1-13)

 

To keep the law is a great oblation, and he who observes the commandments sacrifices a peace offering.In works of charity one offers fine flour, and when he gives alms he presents his sacrifice of praise.To refrain from evil pleases the LORD, and to avoid injustice is an atonement.Appear not before the LORD empty-handed, for all that you offer is in fulfillment of the precepts.The just man's offering enriches the altar and rises as a sweet odor before the Most High.The just man's sacrifice is most pleasing, nor will it ever be forgotten.In generous spirit pay homage to the LORD, be not sparing of freewill gifts.With each contribution show a cheerful countenance, and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy.Give to the Most High as he has given to you, generously, according to your means.For the LORD is one who always repays, and he will give back to you sevenfold.

Time (St. Maximus the Confessor: Centuria, from the chapters On Charity)

 

A charitable mind is not displayed simply in giving money; it is manifested still more by personal service as well as by the communication of Godís word to others: In fact, if a manís service toward his brothers is genuine and if he really renounces worldly concerns, he is freed from selfish desires. For he now shares in Godís own knowledge and love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Talent (Exodus 31:1-5)

 

The Lord said to Moses, ďSee, I have chosen Bezalel, son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and have filled him with a divine spirit of skill and understanding and knowledge in every craft: in the production of embroidery, and making things of gold, silver or bronze, in cutting and mounting precious stones, in carving wood, and in every other craft.Ē

Treasure (Luke 12:33-34)

 

Sell your belongings and give alms. Provide money bags for yourselves that do not wear out, an inexhaustible treasure in heaven that no thief can reach nor moth destroy.For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
