The More You Give, The More You Receive

Do you believe in such saying? For me I do because it is worth that you give something to a person be it money or an act of help. You just don't mind that the person who gives will be blessed by folds. For this Christmas, let us give more. Because this is the true spirit of Christmas.

I do believe in it some way. But I don't expect more from somebody, because I gave a bigger present. But invest my time in somebody, I expect that they some day will invest time in me, hope that is understandable. My few cents ;-) Happy holliday!

It is not that we have to expect something to the person we gave. Its hard to expect if it can't meet the ends. Good thing you don't really expect something in return.

But if you believe "the more you give the more you receive" don't you then expect to receive something when you give? Another thing, I will certainly be the starter to give, someone has to start or else no one will never receive anything ;-)

Yes, expect a little. Let us not expect so big because we might just disappoint ourselves. You are right in your second sentence. I agree with you. Somebody must start giving and everything will flow smoothly.

I believe in the saying. But I donĀ“t think that "giving" has anything to do with presents or material goods. Giving is about the true generosity of giving oneself and not expecting anything in exchange. By doing that you are rewarded by receiving love and respect. And that is, of course, the true spirit of Christmas (which is the day we remember Christ, the man who gave himself in flesh and spirit).

Sometimes we relate the word "giving" to material things since the world of today is full of materialistic ideas. You are right. I agree with what you have said. Giving can mean many things. Thanks for the beautiful words.

I do believe that.....even though when you give you shouldn't expect anything back except that warm fuzzy feeling that you get when you think of someone getting the gift! I give to toys for tots and when I wake up on Christmas morning I know four more kids will have a toy who might not have gotten one! It's a wonderful feeling!

Thanks for believing. It is truly important to give to others without expecting something back. Only a few people are doing these kind of acts. I hate to see people ignoring helpless people.

That's true and I also believe in that. THe more we become selfish, the lesser we are blessed.

Everything we do has results and the results depends on how we do things. I do agree with what you have said. It is bad being selfish. You only think of yourself when your selfish.

I partly agree with you, I experienced this before, Having given alot, material things and non material things, I received much in return. but when you give, you should give not because you want something in return, but out of generosity :) happy mylotting

Hi davaome! I am too being given material things in this world because I am being surrounded by generous people. Luckily. But I can't promise to them that I will return their goodness to me now. I will pay them back when I have a job. I believe I owe them big so much. Because they have molded me of what I am right now.

You said it simply and this is truly something we should seek individually for Christmas and beyond it into the new. Why not be giving and help another human being in need? The spirit of Christmas is not an exchange of gifts. It is fine exchange. Some things have even been created called an exchange that help so many people and of course exchange at work, or within friends and families. It is a way of expressing and can be a really nice thing but it is not giving, not in the true sense of the word, exchanging.

Hi bluedoll! Thank you. I am flattered. Let us not just do this whenever it is Christmas but also the rest of the year especially when someone needs help. No matter how small you have helped a person, still it is a big help. God rewards.

This holiday season is representative of the spirit of giving as an act of pure love, that's why I love this time of year. I feel as if this time of year represents people like me who have a natural compulsion towards giving and doing good works. In aggreeance with you, cearn25, I do believe that it is much more rewarding to give than to receive because blessings always follow when you give freely and purely to and for the benefit of others. Happy holidays!

Happy holidays to you too Sir Roberten! Base from what you stated in your comment, you really are a generous person. I hope you continue with what you are doing and may God bless you more and more.
