Evolving from a very selfish couple of years because of some hurts and pains, I have made more of an effort to give.
Living in Los Angeles affords you ears to so many various “sob” stories, so much so, you automatically tune out their broke pleas. I had a friend tell me that they don’t give because of fear the person would use their funds for drugs or alcohol, and while i understand that as a pretty valid reason, our responsibility is not how they spend the money it is our willingness to give understanding that we will in return receive something; especially if you think of this in a godly way.
I must say, in conclusion, that so far giving selflessly has been a blesssing to me. Not only has giving blessed me but it is making me more aware of how I spend my money and connsequences of overspending. Giving is a true blessing.
