I have a friend (my best friend, a great friend and person) who wears her heart on her sleeve. She had some money saved up ($$$), while at church the topic came up of raising funds needed to build a school in (sorry, I forgot where…I want to say India) and they put up the goal amount. She sat there for a hot minute, pulled out her checkbook and donated to the cause…..for the FULL AMOUNT! Leaving her with next to nothing in savings. She did it with an open heart and no expectations what so ever. Crazy but without her even thinking about it, or stressing things, and just being a kind person she has savings (again) and a life full of abundant blessings.
Those who give generously receive more, but those who are stingy with what is appropriate will grow needy.
