Giving freely is a good way to receive Love, Joy & Happiness.
What's the true meaning of giving?
The true spirit of giving is doing for others with no expectation of gain. It might be a gift you bought, one you made, or the gift of time or volunteer to benefit others. Giving means different things to different people and that's how it should be. Giving is an emotion that brings you joy happiness and love in return.
What does the Holy Bible teach us about Giving?
The Cheerful Giver: 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
6 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
God not only loves a cheerful giver, but He opens the floodgates of Heaven and pours out blessings on cheerful givers. Giving does not come easy. True giving is giving from the heart without any expectations or something in return. For some people, giving comes easy as it is their daily lifestyle. Kindness and generosity flow in them - whether it is giving a gift for an occasion or simply giving. There is an unspeakable joy in giving that only the giver experiences.
Every time you give, you create space to receive something back from the Universe. Give anything: give a simple smile, give your time, give your talent, or even a small token - just anything: it need not necessarily be cash/ money; "for it is in giving that we receive"(Francis De Assis). When you give without any thought or desire for something back, your returns will be limitless.
Everyone has something of value that can be passed on to another person. Everybody has the power to give. But we hold on to them tightly and do not give. Some people have much and give very little. While others have little and yet give everything. Robin Sharma says that the happiest people are not those getting more but those giving more.
Let us try to develop the art of giving. If we have experienced joy, let us learn to share our joy with others. If we have experienced love, let us in turn, love others. The important thing is not what we give or how often we give. The important thing is that we give willingly. If you practice this art you will be surrounded by love and joy. As long as you give, you will also receive it. Once you have crossed the initial barrier to becoming a constant giver, you will find yourself enjoying giving. Do not keep a record of what and how much you have given. Just spread the joy. The record keeper is up there in Heaven. We all have the power to give but most of us by hold the keys tightly in our fists and do not let go. Open your fist and let abundance flow by the simple act of giving.
