The Secret To Living Is Giving

One way to esteem a person is by what he says.  A better way is by what he does. The best way is by what he gives. Elizabeth Bibesco said, Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting.
The big problem is not the haves and have-nots; it's the give nots. The Lord loves a cheerful giver--and so does everyone else.
Charles Spurgeon urged, "Feel for others--in your wallet."
An Indian proverb says, "Good people, like clouds, receive only to give away."
The best generosity is that which is quick. When you give quickly, it is like giving twice. When you give only after being asked, you have waited too long.
Whatever good happens in your life is not so that you can keep it all to yourself.  Part of it is intended to be given to others, I agree with E.V, Hill: Whatever God can get through you, He will get to you.
The book of Acts says, "It is more blessed to give than to receive? (20:36). Giving is always the thermometer of our love for others. Eleanor Roosevelt observed, "When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die." Getters don't receive happiness. Givers do.
Living for others is the best way to live for yourself. John Wesley advised, "Make all you can, save all you can, give all you can."  That's an excellent formula for a successful life.
When it comes to giving, some people who give until it hurts is that they are so sensitive to pain. Greed always diminishes what has been gained. Mike Murdock states, "Giving is proof that you have conquered greed."
If you have, give. If you lack, give. G. D. Bordmen said, "The law of the harvest is to reap more than you sow." It is true; People who give always receive.
Selfishness continually ends in self-destruction.
Henry Drummond said, "There is not happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving." The test of generosity is not necessarily how much you give but how much you have left." Henry David Thoreau said, "If you give money, spend yourself with it." What you gives, lives.
