Do you include giving as a part of your life?

I’m not talking about giving back. I am referring to the way you use your talents and gifts to benefit others.

If you’re rich, you can give money. If you’re a gifted musician you can teach others how to perfect their art. If you are a talented engineer, you might design artificial legs that help people with spinal cord injuries walk again.

But what if you’re none of these? Do you risk doing nothing because you think you have nothing?

One thing we all have is time. Most of us have hands, ears and shoulders. You can listen to someone who is grieving, you can hold the hand of someone dying, you can hug someone who is lonely.

Do something for somebody rather than risk doing nothing for nobody.

    For it is in giving that we receive.
