When I mentioned to my daughter I would like to be a philanthropist, she asked, “But don’t you have to have money to do that?” Well, there is that! Okay, I’m not a Melinda Gates or a MacKenzie (formerly Bezos) who give away money in the billions, but I still believe any of us can be a philanthropist. Because Jesus said there’s one philanthropist who outdid even those wealthy women, the widow at the temple in Jerusalem. Though she was poor, he pointed to her as an example of the ultimate giver. (Mark 12:41-44).
