Day 09 — When the cashier gives me this amount of money for change I know it’s too much money to dump in the charity bucket…
Yea, sometimes being given excess change is a problem. Because it is difficult to give all of it to charity. Most of us are average earning people, if not lesser. We may need to conserve our money especially when we have kids. So we need to save even those pennies obtained as change. As they say, a penny saved is a penny earned.
Charity should be according to our capacity. We cannot give what we do not have. Trying to stand up to a false image of yourself as an exceedingly charitable person without any acceptance of ground realities is foolish. We give when we can and as we can and as we are comfortable with.
The same for the excess change. Do give for charity in a reasonable fashion.
