Charity comes in different forms, from helping the homeless, being a mentor to children, feeding the hungry, to paying your tithes and offerings to your local church that funds the missions. All of these acts of charity are for the common good. Charity efforts should be seen as the gift of giving either through acts of service or financially. Charity: The Gifts of Giving, Discover the Hidden Benefits of Kindness and Generosity by Garret Biss is a simple audiobook that displays the various types of benefits that charity offers for both the giver and receiver. For the giver, it can offer joy and spiritual enlightenment to know that you have helped someone else in need. For the receiver, it touches on a worthy cause that could not have been satisfied otherwise. Biss wants to encourage more people to give. Biss provides a 10-step action checklist to help you get the ball rolling. “If you don't share the blessings that you receive with others, the universe will stop sharing blessings with you.”
Charity: The Gifts of Giving, Discover the Hidden Benefits of Kindness and Generosity by Garret Biss helped me to understand why some people either don't see the value or why they choose not to perform charitable acts. They say charity begins at home, but what this really means is to get outside of yourself and help someone else. Have you noticed that when you are feeling down and you listen to those around you, your woes don't seem as bad after all? This is the same feeling that occurs when you perform an act of charity. Charity can take on a life of its own; it releases a burst of energy, empathy, and excitement like no other. As you give, the universe gives back to you. Garret Biss, thanks for this gift!
