Generosity & Compassion
Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed. (Proverbs 19:17)
Freely you have received; freely give. (Matthew 10:8)
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. (Colossians 3:1–2)
God desires a people whose biblically-saturated worship of Him is distinctly marked by kindness and compassion. In fact, compassion is an intrinsic attribute of a true disciple because it is the evidence of a transformed heart, a heart bearing God's fingerprints—rich in godly love towards others and characterized by mercy and good deeds towards the poor.
Throughout both Testaments of Scripture, we see God's heart and compassion for the poor. Not caring about, turning a blind eye, and forgetting the needs of the poor in developing countries is absolutely unthinkable to God. (Leviticus 19: 9-10; Deuteronomy 15:7, 11; Psalm 41:1; Proverbs 14:21, 22:9; Galatians 2:10; Ephesians 4:28; 1 Timothy 6::18, and many others)
A heart of generosity greatly matters to Jesus, our King. In contrast to the world's preoccupation with money and possessions, His followers are to be characterized by exceedingly great generosity, especially in giving to those in need. So generous people are what we aspire to be! And this unique giving platform allows us to strategically model this faithful generosity to benefit the poor and bring glory to God.
Heart In Heaven is a 501 (c)(3) grass-roots online giving platform for those who feel a sustained tug on their hearts to help reach the lost with the Gospel of Christ and to show compassion to the least of these, as Scripture instructs. It appeals to those who see the massive poverty and great physical needs in the world and decisively refuse to not do something about it. Reminiscent of Jesus’ teachings in the talent and mina parables (Matthew 25:14-30; Luke 19:11-27), they view this platform as a strategic way to maximize their giving, mobilize the greatest personal compassion in service to the world's poor, and robustly enhance their eternal portfolio.
