There is joy in giving than receiving.

Updated on November 11, 2013

There is joy in giving than receiving.

Last week I as attending a class where all the class mates were from of different organizations.  I made friendship with few of them.  After two sessions, I had some urgent business and I could not attend the third session.  When I finished my business and returned to the class, that session was over.  While chatting with those new friends and thinking to whom should I ask the details of the missed class, Rani came forward and asked to me whether I would like to have the copy of the notes which she took during the class.  Really she refreshed my spirit.   She was trying to help me with out expecting anything.  What an attitude?  I thought why she does that?  Many times it comes to my mind.  She find joy in giving.  I am blessed to have such a friend. 

I want to have that attitude. Help someone without asking.

I remember another incident. One man was washing his new car. His neighbor asked him for how much he bought that car. The man replied that it's a gift from his brother. Then the neighbor said he would love to have a car like that. Hearing this the man said to his neighbor that he should wish to have a brother who could gift a car. Listening this conversation the neighbor's wife said, she wanted to be that brother who gifted the car. What a way to go!.

We must help our friends as well as our parents and siblings. Keep that attitude of helping. It will change our life considerably. Through which you can uphold the love togetherness in your relationship. Always lend that helping hand.

Whenever I travel I keep lots of coins with me. You will find beggars everywhere. When they receive money they will bless you. There is joy in giving.

      Giving of oneself without expecting anything in return is the greatest gift of all and also one that derives the most satisfaction. And it need not necessarily involve money. Sometimes giving your time or work can be the most important thing of all. Good job on this hub. Important topic for people to consider.

      You know ... there's a short story I read once .. about a man who loved this woman who was blind. She wished with all her heart that she could see this man who loved her so much. One day, she was blessed to receive transplants so that she could see and finally she saw him, but rejected him. He had gone blind. As he walked away hurt, he told her "Take care of your eyes dear because I loved you so much it was I who donated my eyes to you." (I may have the words slightly wrong) But the meaning is powerful. Thank you for a great hub.

      It's true, youcanwin, there's a feeling of joy one gets from giving something without being asked that is seldom matched by anything else. Except, of course, the birth of a new child.

      Great hub. Giving without expectation of any return is a joy, and it seems you are always rewarded more than you would think. I remember reading Magnificient Obsession when I was a teen, where the man gave away money to people but they were not allowed to tell where they received the money. I was so impressed by that book. I always thought that would be such really neat thing to do.
