THE GIVING QUOTIENT
Some people think of giving only in terms of money. But it’s so much more than that.
Consider these words by Fred Rogers (of Mister Roger’s Neighborhood): . . .Some people have many blessings and hoard them. Some have few and give everything away.

One time when she was gone, someone came and asked for food. The daughter simply said, “Sorry, we can’t help you,” and closed the door.
Returning home, the mom was appalled. “Didn’t you even check the refrigerator or the cupboards?” The girl said, “Mom, our cupboards are bare!”
“No,” the mom replied, “there’s always something we can give.” She looked around and produced a few items to prove her point.
But giving is not limited to money or food.
Consider this thought by movie producer, Vince Allen: I have learned the true value of kindness and persistence in everything I do . . . Some people may not be deserving of this kindness, but at the end of the day, we have to realize that we are all equal.
Did you ever stop to think that you can give a good attitude? Sometimes a smile or simple kindness can really brighten someone’s day.

Wise King Solomon said: The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller. The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped (Proverbs 11: 24-25, The Message).
Giving quotient results are always up to you.
