It’s that time of year again.

As you celebrate with friends and loved ones, remember those around you who need a little help from you to make their celebration a little more blissful.

Can you provide for someone in need during this season?

You probably worked hard, earned quite some money this year, got promoted, extended your business frontiers, made it into that major league, or some other really fulfilling accomplishments, and you for sure survived 340+ days of this year. What better way to celebrate, to express your joy, and to show you are grateful! Give someone else a reason to rejoice.

The good thing about giving is that you gain too. Apart from God’s promises about us receiving more and more when we give, there’s this good feeling, this joy you get when you put a smile on someone else’s face.

Luke 6:38 – Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full–pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.

Here’s my good advice. Rework your budget for the month to allow for more philanthropy on your part. Let the love and joy go round until it touches every portion of this planet. You’ll be glad you did.
