The Blessing Of Giving
“The man who will use his skill and constructive imagination to
see how much he can give for a dollar, instead of how little he
can give for a dollar, is bound to succeed.” – Henry Ford
If we want to receive, first we have to be willing to give. The only time the words of Jesus are quoted outside of the gospels or the book of revelation is when the Paul reminds us in Acts 20 verse 35 that Jesus said “It is more blessed to give than to receive!”
Generosity and not mean spiritedness is the hallmark of the successful life. A few days ago our Daily Insight quoted the words of Napoleon Hill “It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.”
We all want great value for our money, but are we willing to give it? Are we willing to go the extra mile, even for a friend or family member? If like Henry Ford and his first mass produced “Model T Ford” which you could get in “any color as long as it was black;” we can find a way to add value to the lives of others in a way that costs them a little rather than a lot, we are like Henry Ford, bound to succeed!
