When you help someone else financially, realize that the money you are giving away is not really yours. Really the money belongs to the person to whom you are giving it! The Almighty has merely made you His messenger to collect that money and give it to its rightful owner.
Today, write a check to your favorite charity and tell yourself, "I am God's messenger!"
(see Rabbi Chaim Zaitchyk - Maayanai Hachaim, vol.3, p.138; Rabbi
Pliskin's "Consulting the Wise")
