Causes and Effects in "Giving"

Every action has a reaction. Anything will affect everything. Whenever I eat, sleep and exercise properly, whatever my body needs my body will respond by giving to me. If I neglect exercise for a single day, my body responds the very next day by causing drowsiness, fatigue, a slight increase in weight and constipation.

"Whatever a man soweth so shall he reap" is a cause-and- effect relationship of immense proportions. The sowing is I an act of giving in anticipation of a delayed reward. If you plant wheat, you'll eventually reap wheat as a harvest. If you plant oat seeds, you'll reap oats. If you plant hate, you will receive hate in return. If you plant money, you will receive money in return.

Giving is a physical act which requires effort on the part of the giver. Whenever something physical is done; it is a law of Nature that this will cause a reaction within the physical world. If you planted wheat seeds, for example, you physically changed the environment, and the universal laws of nature dictated that wheat would eventually grow upon the ground.

To "Give" your Heart

If you plant love for another person within your heart, this will cause you to do things that you would not otherwise do. If you were a young woman in love with a man, you would act quite differently toward this person than you would toward others. You would check your appearance to make yourself pleasant looking, say things that would please, and make gestures that would indicate your feelings.

These physical changes would become apparent to the loved one, and he would respond in some manner. His response represents a change in the physical world, and that change also would create a rippling effect in his life.

To "Give" Time and Money

If you invest time and money into any endeavor, you are also making physical changes within the environment. Things begin to happen that would otherwise not happen, and the returns on your investment eventually will find their way back to you. If your time and money are wisely invested, you will reap a profit. If not, you will reap a loss.

My original motivation for opening a confectionery store was very simple. I enjoyed eating sweet things and wanted to share that enjoyment with the world around me. I felt that others were not aware of the great enjoyment that could be found eating homemade, high-quality food.

I began a campaign to make others aware they were missing out on something good. The benefits were obvious to me. Homemade confections were better tasting, more healthful, more pleasing to view and very low priced in relation to commercially made confections.

My wife and I demonstrated these benefits to all potential customers. We offered educational instruction classes in the store and advertised the benefits by television, radio and newspaper.

As the volume of sales increased, we made sure that we obtained every product direct from the manufacturer so that we could offer our product at the lowest possible cost. On occasion we even made long trips to other cities in order to save transportation costs. We made larger purchases during the off season from manufacturers at sale prices and then offered these items to our customers at similarly low prices.

      I'll need to check out the Psalms that you mention. We are now into the season for giving.

      I love the term "Universal truth"...King David extolled these in Psalm fact he was over the top about universal truths...except that he called them "your laws", or "your precepts"...he couldn't seem to get enough of them. And he was called a man after God's own heart.

      Giving is an awesome universal truth...yet it goes against the grain of man's natural thinking (which tells you something).

      Hi Sue, We retired from the business in the early 90's. Much of it is described in "How to Think Small Business for Big Profits." It will probably be mentioned in upcoming Hubs.

      Perhaps the lesson is to learn to give unconditionally... Otherwise it is not a gift...

      Christopher- Universal truth abounds in my novels. When I read any novel at all, I always look for a universal truth.

      Gypsy Rose Lee-- Are you sure those were potatoes? Maybe they were onions! Bless you and joking with you.

      Sheila-- You sound like you were brought up with Christian values.

      Dashoglund--Glad to be there for you and thank you for following me so faithfully.

      Dexter--What?!?! you paid attention to my suggestion? I gotta check out your next HUB for sure!

      Thank you Reynold, I remember being told as a child that it is better to give than to recieve, and that giving blesses both the giver and the reciever. We are truly blessed.

      Giving is caring. I was able to give something so simple as boiled potatoes to a poor bedraggled bum and he cried.

      What you say about giving is a universal truth Reynold. A good subsection of that is to always try to be pleasant, friendly, and mannerly. You get the best reactions in life if you are.

      Thanks for another awesome hub.

      Once you discover the magic of "Giving" you will never go back to your old ways. Your daughter ,of course, will be a reflection of you as she matures. Look for more on this subject over the next month. Glad you are happier now.
