Why Give?

Tzedakah / צדקה is more than giving money to the poor. Tzedakah means “doing the right thing” by demonstrating tzedek (justice, fairness) in your life. Done properly, tzedakah requires the donor share their compassion & empathy along with the money. In the writings of the great Maimonides, “Whoever gives tzedakah to the poor with a sour expression & in a surly manner, even if he gives a thousand gold pieces, loses his merit. One should instead give cheerfully & joyfully. To empathize with him in his sorrow”

Tzedakah / צדקה has 2-parts: one with the hand & one with the heart. Messianic Judaism teaches the belief that donors benefit from tzedakah just as much, if not more than the poor recipients, this belief remains a common theme in the entire Jewish world. Whereas the poor receive money or other material assistance, the donor receives the merit of sharing the Almighty’s work. Accordingly, tzedakah involves giving assistance with the hand & consolation with the mouth so the heart is without embitterment.

Make a Difference

New = DET 16:20 A person who routinely practices righteousness is called a tzaddik, a righteous man (tz’deket = feminine) Followers of Yeshua haNotsri are to be known as tzaddikim as written in MAT 05:16 + 1-JHN 02:29 / 03:07 because they demonstrate their love by giving to others. Some of the sages of Israel have said that practicing tzedakah is among the highest of all the mitzvot (commandments), along with teshuvah (repentance) and tefillah (prayer). Going deeper, tzedakah is declared to be life-giving: בּארח־צדקה חיים / be’orach-tzedakah chayim (in the path of charity there is life) from PRV 12:28. This pasuk further identifies the tzaddik as gracious ( חַנוּן / chanun) & giving ( נִתַן / natan). The tzaddik goes beyond the obligation to perform tzedakah as a mere outward duty & practices benevolent love. Of course the greatest act of tzedakah was demonstrated by the gracious gift of Yeshua as His righteous death covered ( כַפֵּר / Kapor) our deliberate sin. Only Yeshua truly fulfilled the Torah of Moshe Rebbeinu giving Himself to sanctify others upon the tree at har-Moriah in order to save the world from the wrath of God (JHN 03:36).

Show Your Generosity At These Events

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
