STOP AND THINK – Getting what you want is not nearly as important as giving what you have (Tom Krause, motivational speaker).

During this Christmas week, when most people focus on what they’ll get, take a minute to think about giving. Instead of thinking about our gift lists this year, let’s think more about what we can give of ourselves in time spent with others and helping the poor, rather than spending money we don’t have, even incurring debts for a momentary satisfaction.

Jesus: “It is more blessed to give than receive” (Acts 20:35)
