Giving And Sharing

The Word of God has a lot to say about giving. Whenever I read it or I'm on the receiving end of a gracious act, it constantly challenges and inspires me. There is beauty in giving.

A Way To Give

Focus on self only makes
the world a dreary place to live.
But you make it a brighter scene
when you find a way to give.

Share with random strangers,
not only those you know.
It's by practicing such kindness
God's love in you will glow.

Be sure to give to people
who have no means to repay.
Such will always return to you
in the most unexpected way.

Practice giving to friends,
if only to make them smile.
Doesn't matter if they have it all.
It is a gesture worthwhile.

Be generous with your folks.
Kindness to outsiders alone;
Just how hollow would it be?
For charity begins at home.

Leave a gift for someone
who won't find out it's from you.
Directing all the glory to God
makes giving pure and true.

When you find a way to give,
you sow seeds of joy around.
You leave behind a scent of hope
and make the light of love abound.
