Pass It On

I am blessed as I give freely of myself and what I have.
The phrase "return the favor" reminds me to not only accept a kindness with gratitude, but also to give back just as generously.
Yet I don't wait for someone to extend a courtesy to me before I reach out to others. In sharing an idea, helping a family member, or assisting a coworker, I give freely of myself, and in doing so I am blessed. In my community, I give back, knowing that many people have come before me, paving the way. In prayer, I take time to express my gratitude to God.
Whether I give to others something intangible, such as a compliment, or pass along a cherished possession, such as an heirloom, I experience joy and love. In spreading the wealth and passing it on, I make room in the world for true prosperity and abundance.

"It is more blessed to give than to receive."--Acts 20:35
