Life can be difficult sometimes but what makes it all better is having people who love and care for you in your life. How do you know these people love and care? Through the way they treat you, you can tell if they love and care or not.
So how can you show you love and care towards others? By giving. Giving comes in money forms. It can be through providing people with some material things they need, it can be helping with their finances, it can be through volunteer work or even giving your time to someone. Sometimes just being there without actually doing anything can be all the help that someone needs from you.
So really, you don’t have to wait till you are a rich man to give. You don’t have to wait till you have more than enough to give. Just help people however way you can.
The bible encourages us to be givers and help those in need. Here are some bible verses about giving to serve as a daily reminder to do good to others through giving.
