This Christmas, are you expecting to receive, or, are you planning to give?
With so many people affected by the economy. It's so hard for some to give as generously as they normally would. It is hard for some to give, period. Many kids may never get a gift this christmas, and maybe even some adults.
Do you know a child who may not get a gift this Christmas? What are you going to do?
Giving comes from the heart. There is always a way to give a fun memory without buying a gift.
I always love to give, if I receive that is fine too. I did take two cards off the Easter Seals tree at a local restaurant and bought some toys for needy children. And I always give to the food drive. I feel grateful for what I have, which definitely isn't what it used to be!
I've always enjoyed giving out presents, but this year, my family had to narrow down our list of receivers.
I already gave out most of my gifts.
This year, a friend in our group, her family is having trouble financially, so all of us in the circle of friends put together and bought a gift for her that she'll definitely enjoy and use
Also, there is a lovely old lady who lives across the road from us who had an accident and is now wheelchair bound, so my family will provide Christmas lunch for her this year.

Is it possible for a person to give without truly expecting anything at all in return?Are you aware of anyone who has done this? How and in what way? And how is it that you are aware?

Is It Better To Give or Receive?
by Mark Johann 5 years ago
A message taught by Jesus. I am not doing this as blasphemy but I want to share this to the world that giving without expecting in return is the noblest of all.Criticism from other beliefs are welcome but be modest in your opinion. I posted this one in Catholic Religion only to discuss many things...
