I just want to get your thoughts about that statement above if the said saying is still practical or relevant or true in the computer/cyber age. What I know is that in boxing it is better to give than to recieve. (I'm talking about blow or punch). Do you still believe or observe that saying above? Picture credit: penndelwomenofpurpose.org

Yes, How can you give if you don't have something to give. It means that you are going to give because you have more than enough more blessings. For me, i may not be rich but i know that whatever i give or share will matter. No matter how small it is, i know i can be of help. I want to give because i know how it feels to have nothing. Sharing can be fulfilling too.
In my opinion, they go hand in hand...no pun intended Giving fills you with a sense of peace and joy, knowing that you have helped someone in need. Receiving is "giving" the person who is offering you their gift, the opportunity to display their kindness and receive the rewards of doing so. So either way, it is giving.

This question totally depends on the person point of view. Its really is an opinion and where you stand. For example if a person can hardly get by with his or her current wage than its not good to give because they can hardly take care of themselve but if a person can get by than giving is something they should do. This applies to material/money but there are other ways poor people can give like time. Even though they dont have money they can still give their time to someone else by helping other do something.

Yes I do but I also believe that you should give and not let the receiver know who gave. That way they don't feel a need to give you something back I often send out cards to random people that say thinking of you or have a nice day. I find them through nursing homes or from church. People that may not be able to get out and about that much anymore.
