Righteousness for God makes a difference.

Tobit 12:8-9

Prayer is good with fasting, almsgiving, and righteousness. A few prayers with righteousness are better than many with wrongdoing. It is better to do almsgiving than to lay up gold. For almsgiving rescues one from death, and it will wash away every sin. Those who do almsgiving and are righteous will be full of life.

Personal Challenge...

Once again it is pointed out that almsgiving (going above and beyond that which is expected) is good for us. Yes, is it is only God that can forgive our sins, but by living a righteous life, and doing these things that He has commanded us, like prayer, fasting, almsgiving, and living righteously, will draw us closer to Him. And in drawing closer to Him our desire to sin will decrease and our desire to honor Him will increase.
