Friends demonstrate faithfulness to one another.
Sacrifice is the essence of friendship.
Martin Murphy, Friendship: The Joy of Relationships
If you knew what I know about the power of giving you would not
let a single meal pass without sharing it in some way.
Mercy will cost you, too. It'll cost you time, money, or potentially
relationships. Mercy that doesn't cost much isn't worth much.
But God promises that when you help hurting people by giving
what you have, he will bless you in return.
The greatest gift is a portion of thyself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Inspirational Poems |
Before you ever receive the wonderful treasures of a happy life,
you must first give.
Give of yourself. Be of service to others.
Only what you give can be multiplied back into your own life.
That is the law of the harvest, the law of the ten-fold return.
If you give nothing, even if it is multiplied, you receive nothing.
Mary Kay Ash
Giving freely and giving with a good heart, will never go unrewarded.
James Clear, The Art of Winning In Life
Our giving to God is like giving a thimble of water to the ocean,
or like giving a candle to the Sun. It seems so insignificant that
we tend to lose the thrill of Thanksgiving.
Steve Pease, What should we be thankful for: Being grateful and showing thanks to God is the answer
Which would you rather have -- someone who is nice and helpful to
you all the time who might not give you a gift or someone who shows no
interest in you all year and then gives you a token gift once a year?

Encouraging Bible Verses |
Also, remember that in relationships, you get what you give,
so treat other people the way you'd like them to treat you.
Gavin Bird, Self Esteem: Change your life in one day!
Not what we give, but what we share,
for the gift without the giver is bare;
who gives himself with his alms feeds three,
himself, his hungering neighbor, and me.
James Russell Lowell
Simply give others a bit of yourself; a thoughtful act, a helpful idea, a
word of appreciation, a lift over a rough spot, a sense of understanding,
a timely suggestion. You take something
out of your mind, garnished in kindness out of your heart,
and put it into the other person's mind and heart.
Charles H. Burr
All relationships are designed to embody a dual role of giving and
receiving. If one person is doing all the giving and the other doing
all the receiving, there will be an imbalance.
Charles F. Stanley
Small talk is also useful when gathering information.
Idle chatting puts people off their guard and makes them more
open to giving information that they may deem as not important.
Eric Christian, Introvert
I believe people find it hard to receive; therefore they are more interested
in giving than getting.
Cathy Grant, The Journey
Our attitude in giving matters much more to God than the size of our giving.
Oluwakemi Ola-Ojo, Good Dads, Bad Dads
For it is in the giving that we receive.

Words of Encouragment |
But make no mistake, what I've described here is what makes
great salespeople great. The best ones honestly care about the
people they're selling to, they thrive on meeting new people and
hearing new stories, and they're certain they're giving as much
as they're getting in return.
Joe Procopio, It's All Nonsense
We are all on the same island working towards different goals.

We find out quest.
Short Love Poems
In our friendships there is no blood relation or marriage license holding us together, rather we're simply acknowledging that we are willing to
give and receive with each other. That willingness will change us for the better.
Shasta Nelson, Friendships Don't Just Happen!
Generous giving starts when it hurts to give.
When one moves in the direction of "poverty" in order to
make someone else "rich." By richness we are not talking about
adding to someone else's net worth. Rather we are
talking about spiritual
richness or the richness that comes from living the life that
God intended for all (not just the privileged) to live.
Gordon MacDonald, Generosity: Moving Toward a Life that is Truly Life
Being wealthy is about being productive, giving to others,
serving society, and creating a legacy.
At the time I am writing this, the two wealthiest men in America -Bill Gates
and Warren Buffett -appear
to be asking themselves if wealth is worth it, and they're coming up
with an unusual response.
They're giving away the largest part of their fortunes.
S. Truett Cathy Wealth: Is It Worth It?
We are rich only through what we give,
and poor only through what we refuse.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Cheerful givers do not count the cost of what they give.
Their hearts are set on pleasing and cheering the person to whom the
gift is given.
Julian of Norwich

Men are rich only as they give. He who gives great service,
gets great returns.

Poems about Life |
Giving of ourselves, sharing our gift, is what lifts us. The tricky part is, none of us knows exactly how we will impart the gift we have to give:
what kind word we speak, what song we sing, which hug we give will be the one that touches another soul.
Laya Saul, You Don't Have to Learn Everything the Hard Way--What I Wish Someone Had Told Me
No other single effort has more potential to magnify the church's witness in
a grasping, hostile, self-centered world than a return to the humble,
other-focused giving that typified the church in its earliest days.
If the church can recapture Jesus' original vision of his church as a
generous, giving people, we can also recapture the hearts of a fallen world.
David Roseberry, Giving Up: How Giving to God Renews Hearts, Changes Minds, And Empowers Ministry
We give gifts to those we love in the tradition of the Wise Men and
worship the King in the manner of both the Wise Men and the lowly
We search our minds and make ready our hearts to welcome the
Messiah anew each Christmas season.
Margie Harding, Christmas Countdown: Creating 25 Days of New Advent Traditions for Families
Love is giving. God loved the world so much that He gave His Son.
Jesus loved the world so much, loved you, loved me so much that
He gave His life.
And He wants us to love as He loved. And so now we have also to give until it hurts. True love is a giving and giving until it hurts."
Mother Teresa Quotes
The most obvious lesson in Christ's teaching is that there is no
happiness in having or getting anything, but only in giving.
Poems of Faith |
... when you approach relationships by thinking about giving rather
than getting, and about adding value before seeking value,
you'll be amazed at the return you see on your investment.
Mark Goulston, Real Influence: Persuade Without Pushing and Gain Without Giving In
If the scripture gives a promise and it is not manifesting,
the problem is not God, it is us. That is when we have to investigate
the IF. When God says IF we "do this" then He will "do that" and
the "do that" from God is not happening, then the problem is
we are not doing the IF.
Samuel Williams, Curses and Tithes, Truth and Lies: Excerpt from The Truth About The Tithe
Leadership is the actual process of leading people to a preferred future.
Hence, it is functionally giving leadership in a vulnerable self-giving manner,
not firmly holding leadership (the appointment, position, title) in a
Alexander F. Venter
"Giving" is a verb, a word describing an action. I believe that leadership
is something that is only discovered when it is given. There is an
action required, of "putting out" what leadership is, before it will
become what it is. It is not a badge you wear, but an action you "give".
Costa Mitchell, Giving Leadership: Taking others with you on a journey to destiny
.. change the way you approach giving, shifting the focus from charity
to empathy, from a one-way transfer to a mutually beneficial act,
from guilt and obligation to pleasure and happiness.
Given the growing inequity on our planet, what is the solution? ... a culture
of giving can change the world around us while fulfilling each of our lives
at the deepest level.
... the act of giving creates a multiplier effect, adding something to the life
of those in need but also intrinsically rewarding the giver too,
making him or her happier as well. Altruistic or not - the effect is positive.
Boris F.J. Collardi
