Sacrifical giving needed

"The rich prefer to send token amounts to the poor in [such] a way that the lives of the pleasure-seeking rich are minimally disturbed," says Nepali journalist Kamala Sarup in her American Chronicle article," End of war to protect peace".

Have you seen such behavior? Is it close to home? Do you practice sacrificial giving? Is talking about this uncomfortable? Is this behavior by the rich what Jesus meant by "Whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me"? (See Matthew 25:40)
