Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

I give to others.

 

I make it a priority to give to others because I firmly believe that what I send out comes back to me.

 

I give financially according to my ability to do so. I have let go of the idea that I must be able to give a huge sum in order for it to be worthwhile.

 

Even a bag of groceries to the local food shelter, or a cup of hot coffee for the homeless man on the corner, can go a long ways toward improving someone’s day. I’m not out to change the world, but I do strive to make ripples in my corner.

 

With that in mind, I also donate my time and energy to the improvement of my community.

 

I may not have the means or even the desire to run for public office, but I can volunteer to read with children at the local school, spend an afternoon helping at the food bank, or do any number of other activities for the betterment of society.

There is a time and place to review finances. I will not think about bills and money at any other time during the day.

I strive to use my skills and talents to give back to my community. When I evaluate what I am doing with my God-given interests and abilities, I look beyond earning capacity and focus on what I can do to help others as well.

 

I let go of the notion that my needs must be completely met first in order to be able to give. By opening up to the needs of others, I am fulfilled.

 

Self-Reflection Questions:

 

1.      Am I creating excuses for not giving to others?

2.      Whose need could I help meet today?

3.      How can I use my skills to better my community?
