The world needs a little more giving and a little less taking. (Kary Oberbrunner, motivational writer and speaker)

Have you forgotten the joy of giving that you felt just a few weeks ago at Christmas? What would life be like if we practiced giving through the whole year? Not just giving a brightly wrapped package but visiting a lonely person, sending a note of encouragement, providing a ride where it’s needed or childcare for a young, single mom. That giving will bring lasting joy.

You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35)
