Spirit of Giving

Do you have the spirit of giving. If we all had more of this spirit what a better place this world would be. These poems and quotes will remind you of the good you can do in this world by giving just a bit more.

Think about the times when you received something, someone gave you something. And then think about the times where you have given someone else something. It is a much more rewarding experience to give than to receive.


When You Give
Poet: Margaret Gordon Kuhlman

If you find that life is flat,
Full of this, with none of that,
Try giving!

Introspection makes it flatter;
A few more years - what will it matter?
Try giving!

If the world is dark and bitter;
Things all tend to make a quitter-
Try giving!

Forget yourself in helping others;
Know that all men are your brothers,
You will see then life is sweeter
Than you thought, and far completer -
When you give!


Did You?
Poet Unknown

Did you give him a lift? He's a brother of man.
And bearing about all the burden he can.

Did you give him a smile? He was downcast and blue.
And a smile would have helped him to battle it through.

Did you give him your hand? He was slipping down hill,
And the world, so I fancied, was using him ill.

Did you give him a word? Did you show him the road,
Or did you just let him go on with his load?

Did you ask what it was-why the quivering lip?
Why the half suppressed sob, and the scalding tears drip?

Were you a brother of his when the time came of need?
Do you know what it means to be losing the fight?

When a lift just in time, might set everything right?
Do you know what it means-just the clasp of a hand?

When a man's borne about all a man ought to stand?
