The Gift of Giving


Can you spare three minutes of your time?

Honestly, that’s all it will take for you to feel some type of emotion while watching this video. Day after day, we hear quotes and phrases about the importance of giving to others. There’s even the cliché, “It’s better to give than receive.” Although the phrase has extreme popularity, how often do we actually give to others? And to go beyond that, how often do we give to others without the expectation of getting something in return?

I’ll leave you with that thought, while you take a moment to watch the video.

Now that you’ve watched the video, I ask you this. How can you open your heart to give to someone today? I don’t mean tossing change at someone on the street or doing things in eyesight of an audience, but how will you open your heart and give when no one is looking? Or when no one cares? How will you bless someone in need? Maybe it’s a hug or an encouraging word; maybe picking up the tab for someone who’s a little short on cash in the lunch line. No matter the moment, how will you make a small difference for someone else? Will you listen to that little voice inside and go beyond your comfort zone to be a blessing to someone else?

I sure hope so.
