I read this C.S. Lewis quote recently & I can't get it out of my mind. I want to give like that!

"Charity - giving to the poor - is an essential part of Christian morality....
I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give.
I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare."
C.S. Lewis

Patty- I love this. Can you tell me what Lewis text this is from? RJ and I have talked at length about this exact idea- moving giving from being more than a line item on your family budget. It reminded me of Allen Barton's blog post here:!.html
Thanks so much for sharing!
Merry Christmas to your sweet and busy family!

Rebecca, I actually don't know which book it's from. I found it in a book of quotes. It is continuing to really stir around in my heart though!

Patty- I think it is from Mere Christianity. Your boys are beautiful!
