Don’t say you have nothing to give someone in need. The greatest gifts have nothing to do with material things. The love you give, the hope you inspire, the time and helping hand you extend, the smile on your face—these are worth so much more.
In fact, there’s so much to give other than material things. You can give time, talent, touch, kindness, gratitude or just a smile. These are all eternal gifts and there are as many ways to give as there are grains of sand.
It’s said that listening is an act of love; so if you give a little time to listen to someone in need, the hope, the encouragement you give them may change their lives forever.
The creator, the almighty or the universe has given special gifts to all of us; it’s just about recognizing them. It’s about breaking the stereotype of giving—material things. It’s just about looking at giving from a different perspective.
And when you look differently, you may realize that we aren’t the giver, per say. The giver is someone else; we’re just the ones who share.
