"Our dictionary informs us that the word beneficence is derived from the Latin words bene and facere, to do well. Beneficence, then, is doing well, or the best we can in the use of the possessions over which God has made us stewards. The moral obligation resting upon the possessor of property to use it for the glory of God must be conscientiously met, or he will suffer irreparable injury to his Christian character. Nothing contributes more to a healthy growth in all those graces which go to make up the perfect Christian character than the systematic,conscientious, and prayerful exercise of beneficence."
