What would the world be like if everyone tried to give more than he or she took? People would change. It is difficult for a healthy person to keep receiving from others without giving something back. Out of abundance comes generosity.
Give generously to others without hope of return, and the person receiving is changed and wants to pass it on. Once you have the mind-set of giving, the more you receive, the more you want to give. It becomes a positive cycle. As it spreads, not only do individuals change, but so do organisations, communities and societies. Here are three questions to ask before you can effectively give more:
