And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”
We dogs can totally relate to this as we are simply born givers. We give our people our company, loyalty, time love and devotion.
This is difficult for some people to do. Which is a sad thing, because they will never understand the concept of the more you give away, the more you receive.
It honestly doesn't matter what you give it could be money, your time, a kind word, a hug. Anything that could help another is something that can be given.
Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full--pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back."
Friends life is short, and for some it's very hard. We encourage you to look around you as you go about your daily lives, if you see an opportunity to do another person a kindness don't let it pass you by.
The person who seems down, give them a kind word or a smile. The mother whose children are crying in the grocery store line, who's about to run to the car for the change due on her grocery bill, pay it for her.
Giving doesn't have to be a huge donation to your favorite charity, (though it can be) giving is also the random little kindnesses that you can do in the moment that are huge to the person you've done them for.
A little kindness can go a long way, and we truly agree, "Your greatness is not determined by what you have, but what you give away".
Love and Peace,
