The Gift of Giving!

Do you have the “gift of giving” to others? Do you volunteer in your community, at your church or local school? Do you reach out to others when they have a need, with a listening ear or caring heart? Have you invited a neighbor or friend for coffee when they are discouraged? Do you take food to a friend, neighbor or colleague when they are ill or have a death in the family? I find myself looking forward to “giving of myself” to others when I volunteer. For years, as I’ve stood for hours cooking/baking to take to others, my gift has been the blessing I receive in giving. Doing for others also takes my mind off my personal heartaches and sorrows. The gift of giving is truly a gift of receiving. Acts 20:35b: “it is more blessed to give than to receive.”
