Just give

Daily Reading for October 25

Give, looking for nothing again, that is, without consideration of future advantages: give to children, to old men, to the unthankful, and the dying, and to those you shall never see again: for else your alms and curtesy is not charity, but traffick and merchandise: and be sure that you omit not to relieve the needs of your enemy and the injurious; for so possibly you may win him to your self; but do you intend the winning him to God.

From Holy Living by Jeremy Taylor, quoted in Readings in Anglican Spirituality, complied by David Hein (Forward Movement Publications, 1991).
