We must desire His approval of our giving, rather than the praise and admiration of people. The Lord Jesus wants us to practice benevolent or charitable giving. Jesus said "When you give to the poor. Jesus is specifically teaching about "alms" in this passage: Do you give amply enough to the Church that she can be generous in benevolent giving?LOVE Lesson 3 JESUS & THE ROOT OF THE TEACHING TO LOVE The Testing of Jesus by the Scribe Mark 12 tells us that a scribe saw Jesus talking with some Pharisees and Herodians, and heard them reasoning together.
