It is coming up to that time of year so it beggars the question! Is it better to give than receive ?
Hi, if you are in a position to give comfortably without causing yourself problems then that's fine, but also if you are not in a position to give, receiving is fine and someone shouldn't feel guilty if they can't afford to return the jesture. Just my opinion of course.
I heard a quote once, it may have been from, Hello Dolly, it was about money and was on the lines, money is like manure, it is no good unless it is spread around to make things grow. I think that is quite sensible, buy lots of presents, it injects a burst of activity, movement and growth into the economic system. Hoarding money creates a shortage of supply and so becomes more expensive.
That's such a subjective question. It depends on how selfish, or how selfless a person is.
Well, I am happier when I can give to others and make them happy, especially to children. When I see my family, friends or other people smiling because of what I've done or tried to do for them, I am so glad. So, yes, better give than receive (this doesn't include business :-))
Personally, I think giving is receving! And by receiving I don't necessarily mean material things! There is no greater joy or feeling of accomplishment when you see the happiness your actions or donations (of any kind) produce!
If you have nothing then receiving would be better. It's hard for the poor to give.
Those that are blessed should try to share with those who are less fortunate. I'm a militant atheist but one of the better points I grant to both the Bible and the Qu'ran is that both admonish people to give to the poor and less fortunate.
There are a lot of greedy and wealthy people in the world and a lot of generous poor folk. Go figure.
Yes! It's better to give than receive. At least in my opinion. I know that although I enjoy receiving, I get much more excited about knowing I'm giving someone something that they will enjoy. Good question!
