As the Lord instructs, He asks us to pray for hearts that they would love Him. When we are 'IN-LOVE' - it bears fruits of how our lives are absorbed with thoughts of that person or thing. We begin thinking and then talking about them all the time. Then we want to be with them as often as possible, after that we want to do as much as we can for and with them.

When it comes to Jesus, and totally being 'IN-LOVE' with Him, and His Word, our heart will speak; LOUDLY! The Word of God says; "...out of the heart the mouth speaks..." (Luke 6:45)
It's the same way with the hand,  it's speaks with the heart (as we walk in His Spirit); and gives to others as it comes from his heart and his heart only!
As we live for the Lord; coming to the place that this is more than just duty, because duty will only carry us so far. I.E.- it  will only give us the care or the desire to go so far and then it drops off; but if  our heart is for the Lord and desiring to finish and complete His PURPOSE (laid out in the Word of God) then that will go farther. By just doing our - duty, we will not have strength and ability to endure  to the end.
The Apostle Paul was talking in Philippians 4:17  about  adding to 'our-account' not here upon this earth, but to our 'heavenly-spiritual-account'.

 "Not that I seek the gift itself, but I do seek the profit which increases to your [heavenly] account [the blessing which is accumulating for you]."

 *Paul wasn't worried about people giving to his supply; he was more concerned about their account.
As they gave to Paul and the ministry of missions; they were adding to their account.

Daily we can give to our account as we serve others and  care for others. This 'SUPPLY' helps the Kingdom go forward!  What a major blessing this is; as we read on a couple verses down; verse 19:
"And my God will liberally supply (fill until full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus."

All to say; we can NEVER out give God! The more we give our lives to Him, to His Work- thus, His
purpose He has laid out for each of us. We are filling up our KINGDOM  ACCOUNT.
One very important way is supporting the ministry of missions, both local and abroad.
Knowing that green paper we call money, can equip ministries with the essentials to ADVANCE THEM ...thus: ADVANCING THE KINGDOM!
