Giving

A simple word, yet filled with so much purpose and meaning. Relatively speaking, we live in a country of great abundance. Most of us have access to resources that enable us to feed ourselves, have some nice things and save for future events. However, there are those who truly need and it is our great privilege to meet those needs!

Giving is a way to check ourselves and for us to remain grounded. It is easy to become self-centered and focused only on our needs and wants. Giving keeps us humble and allows us to, at least sometimes, put others needs ahead of our own. Look at what the good book says:

Deuteronomy 15:10

Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this, the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

So when we give, we ultimately allow ourselves to be blessed. And it is not always money that we can give, but also our time and our talents. These are often more valuable to the person in need than money!

So give and give cheerfully! It will feel good, and that is often the greatest reward!

God Bless you!
