It’s the most giving time of the year. It might also be the most expensive but it’s also a season of giving.
Growing up my parents taught me a very old phrase “ it’s better to give than to receive” that statement could not be more true.⠀
I’ve learned over the years the more I’ve given the more comes back…. it’s really true.⠀
My parents would tell me to give til it hurt.⠀
My parents would pick up every hitch hiker… maybe not the safest move but they would chat with them and even pray for them before they dropped them off.⠀
While it’s nice to receive a nice gift once and awhile I’ve learned I get far more joy giving to someone else.⠀
It seems the more I’ve given it honestly has come back 10x.⠀
I don’t think the secret lies in the next big funnel or make your millions scheme.⠀
I think the real truth is if you give unselfishly from the bottom of your heart your life will be filled with more blessings than you will be able to contain.⠀
I had a coffee yesterday at Starbucks with a random stranger an older fellow in his 70’s we chatted for over an hour. He told me about how many people he knows are unhappy with their lives.⠀
We shared how each of us has had many set backs in our lives.⠀
I said deep in my heart I am truly happy. We are blessed beyond measure simply because of where in the world we have been born.⠀
It was a wonderful visit and I’m so happy I took time to share a coffee with a random stranger rather than checking my phone
This season give from the bottom of your heart and you’ll be amazed at what happens in your life.⠀
Please share what is the best present you have ever received?
