Giving By Scott Keffer

“Giving is giving up,” I thought.

Oh, the blind in me.

“Giving is getting back,” I know.

Oh, the light I see!

Giving returns a bigger benefit to the giver than the receiver. It expands our hearts… our capacity to love and be loved.

We receive the greater blessing. Think about that. We should never apologize (even to ourselves) that we are essential in making giving happen.

From the physical to the spiritual, the benefits are amazing. It transforms the giver… their family, their business and their community. The receiver is blessed as well, receiving gifts of donor’s money and time… more importantly, their heart and spirit and support of you, the organization and the charity.

You will never wonder who benefits the most: the giver always does!

So, who can YOU bless today… by creatively, passionately and whole-heartedly introducing them or reminding them of the power and pleasure of planned giving.


“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
Holy Bible, Book of Acts 20:35
