The Bible says, “There is more happiness in giving than in receiving.”1 When I share what I have with others, it is a way that I can show kindness.
Sometimes it may not be easy to give of something that I have, especially if it’s something that I really like. However, when I share, I can bring joy to someone else and it also brings me happiness.
Sharing with someone else doesn’t always mean sharing things. I can also share with others by helping, doing kind deeds, and giving of my time. I can share thoughtful and kind words.
Jesus once said, “Give to others, and God will give to you.”2 The way I give to others is the way that God will give back to me.3
