Give and You shall Receive

The bible verse (NKJV) “Give, and it will be given to you” made me wonder about the reasons we give. Is the reason to receive in return? Giving love and receiving in return is wonderful though. Working and giving of our time, and receiving monetary reward is great and very necessary to live comfortably. To give as a volunteer, the benefits are enormous to your health, happiness and so much more. When you’re able to fuel yourself with goodness so that you can give more to others, it is good not only for you but others too. Therefore, I believe, it is important to let go of anger and resentment and to embrace forgiveness and give and share compassion and love.

My mind overflows with thoughts of giving and receiving…

The old adage come to mind ‘what you sow you shall reap’

What am I sowing in this world?

Is it anger, hatred, or peace and love?

No one is too poor to give appreciation, compassion, help, love, understanding and so much more. Being rich doesn’t mean you shouldn’t receive something, everyone needs compassion, happiness, and love. Anyone can give something, and anyone can receive something.

Studies show that when you give to others, your generosity is often continued down the line to someone else or returned to you. Anne Frank stated, “No-one ever has ever become poor from giving.”  It probably is in giving that we receive the greatest gift.

Just Give a Little Love

Give a little  love

So that you can feel the joy

The joy of living!

Give a little  love

So that you can practice thankfulness

And appreciation for life!

Give a little  love

So that you can encounter kindness

A life of love and kindness is never wasted!

Give a little  love

So that you can feel blessed

To live a life with blessings in abundance!

Whilst writing this poem I thought of the lyrics “What the World Needs Now Is Love” and I was also humming along  to this catchy song. Lyrics by Hal David, sung by Jackie DeShannon and by Dionne Warwick

“What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No not just for some, but for everyone”

May you all find yourself surrounded by love and experience the joy of giving in return.
