As I get older, I continue to learn more about what the concept of “giving” really means. One significant principle I have come to understand is this: The more my heart loves to give, the more opportunities I have to receive.
I don’t give for the purpose of receiving, but it is a principle nonetheless. When a farmer plants a lot of good seed, he gets a lot in return. When we learn to live in the spirit of giving, we will be on the lookout for opportunities to give. They could be as simple as:
- Opening the door for someone.
- Letting a car in front of you in traffic – and smiling.
- Saying “thank you” to your children’s teachers (especially when the kids are older and we don’t know the teachers quite as well)
What can you do this week to give to others?
