I recently talked about how I’m moved by Random Acts of Kindness. Growing up in a Christian home I came to appreciate and learn to practice the art of giving. After all the Bible teaches us, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
In the book The Power of Giving and How it Leads to Success and Happiness Daniel Goldhar delves into giving and all that it entails. As someone who usually only reads things from a Christian perspective I found the book very interesting and insightful since it included many different religions teachings on giving–from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
I also found it intriguing that there are a certain number of times that we can give without being reciprocated-and past that number we cease to feel that we are giving and instead begin to feel used. The book contains many great nuggets to think about-from things to use, try, and do in your personal life to ideas and insights for corporations who want to be genuine and give back.
This book was helpful, uplifting, and an easy read. I’d recommend it for anyone who would like to learn a little more about giving and how to use this great and wonderful tool for themselves!
Be sure to check it out on Amazon to read more about the author and what you’ll find in the book!
Do you believe in the power of giving? When did a gift–either that you received or gave–impact your life? Please leave me a comment and let me know!
