This is the season of giving, and even though we give year-round, we focus and highlight our efforts of giving during this time of the year. Philanthropy, according to learningtgive.org, is about "generosity in all its man forms, commonly referred to as gifts of time, talent, and treasure." And why do we give? We all have our own very distinct reasons. Perhaps we should pause and think about why we give.
Regardless of the reason why we give, the benefits we gain are as good as those of the receiver. Giving brings us happiness! Think about it... aren't you always in a good mood when you give? Doesn't it bring a smile to your face? By giving, we express or instill gratitude. Giving can lead to happiness on both ends of the process... as the giver and the receiver.
Giving keeps us healthy! We aren't stressed out when we are giving. The thought of giving makes us feel better, which in turn relieves our "bad" for our health stress. Giving helps us develop a social connection. Even though we do not give with the expectation of receiving, sometimes down the line, someone is going to reciprocate making us and the new giver feel closer.
Giving is more than just a seasonal event. We can be givers throughout the year. We can give gifts and presents for birthdays, anniversaries, or just because (Hallmark stores give free just because cards once a month); we can volunteer our time and skills; or we can reach in our pockets and donate small or large amounts of money to a charity of a church.
The definition of giving is "providing love or other emotional support; caring." Our world is greatly in need of love, emotional support, and caring. Regardless of how or when we decide to give, the benefits will outweigh the gift. Who knows, we may even motivate others to give, to volunteer, and to connect with others which in turn strengthens our community and our world.
"Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." (2 Corinthians 9:7)
