I wouldn’t consider it money wasted because God notices but I would certainly find a cheaper way to help in the future.
He doesn't miss a single thing.
Our church has a food pantry and gives food away every Thursday but you are only allowed to get it every other Thursday they lessen the crowd that way. The only questions asked are, your name and how many in your family. No IDs are checked and nobody need establish "need" but it's implied that you have a need, as opposed to a "want".
The parking lot tells a story, I drive by there sometimes on Thursday and notice the newer and expensive cars. It doesn't stop me from giving, that's the part I answer for, if somebody is cheating, that's the part they will answer for.
Like I said, He doesn't miss a thing.
