The prophet spoke to his followers:

Look not at what generosity is, but what it isn’t.

Give money to a drug addict, or an alcoholic, you’re helping him step into a grave.

Give money to a narcissist and you’ve just robbed yourself.

Give money to a child as you apologize for missing her soccer practice, you’re teaching her that money is more important than love.

Unless money is given without the need for repayment, it is nothing more than spiritual extortion.  Give generously of your love.  Kind words used generously will heal.

Then he passed around the collection plate.
