LOVING IS GIVING

Who taught us a dramatic lesson in giving with love?

Love doesn't calculate; it spends lavishly! But how can someone in poverty give more than someone who has ample means? The answer is very simple: love is more precious than gold! Real giving must come from the heart. A gift that is given with a grudge or for display loses most of its value, but a gift given out of love, with a spirit of generosity and sacrifice, is invaluable. The amount or size of the gift doesn't matter as much as the cost to the giver.

What we have to offer may look very small and not worth much, but if we put all we have at the His disposal, no matter how insignificant it may seem, then He can do with it and with us what is beyond our reckoning.

Do you know the joy and freedom of giving liberally to God and to neighbor with gratitude and love?

"You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving".

Tutoo ka dyan, Tito Bay, when we give, we give wholeheartedly without expecting anything in return.

Exactly. If you want the gift of grace from God, then be generous and kind to others! at huwag ka nang pasikret-sikret pa!

And when you give do not expect something in return. A noble virtue!

If all the people on this earth know the meaning of the word "love", then, we would have peace because LOVE IS JESUS AND JESUS IS PEACE!
