"Then when you call the Lord will answer. "Yes, I am here," he will quickly reply. All you need to do is to stop oppressing the weak and stop making false accusations and spreading vicious rumors! Feed the hungry! Help those in trouble! Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you shall be as bright as day. And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy you with all good things, and keep you healthy too; and you will be like a well-watered garden , like an ever-flowing spring."
~ Isaiah 58:9-11 ~
"It's not how much we give
but how much love we put into giving."
~ Mother Teresa ~
"The measure of your life will not be in what you accumulate,
but in what you give away." ~ Wayne Dyer ~
"Gracious acceptance is an art - an art which most never bother to cultivate. We think that we have to learn how to give, but we forget about accepting things, which can be much harder than giving... Accepting another person's gift is allowing him to express his feelings for you." ~ Alexander McCall Smith (while you're reading this post, click on this link...happy music!) ~
"Happiness doesn't result from what we get
but from what we give." ~ Ben Carson ~
"No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of another." ~ Charles Dickens ~
"Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys." ~ P. J. O'Rourke ~
"We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give."
"Do you know know that God entrusted you with that money (all above what buys necessities for your families) to fee the hungry, to cloth the naked, to help the stranger, the widow, the fatherless; and, indeed, as far as it will go, to relieve the wants of all mankind? How can you, how dare you, defraud the Lord by applying it to any other purpose?" ~ John Wesley ~
"You can give without loving,
but you cannot love without giving."
~ Amy Carmichael ~
"The wise do not buy into other people's perceptions of who they are and what they are capable of. Instead, they bypass a person's public persona and see who they are in their highest expression. When you see actions taken with integrity, instead of words only, you will then know a soul's worth." ~ Shannon L. Alder ~
"It is the heart that does the giving; the fingers only let go."
~ proverb ~
"For if you give, you will get! Your gift will return to you in full and overflowing measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use to give - large or small - will be used to measure what is given back to you." ~ Luke 6:38 ~
