How does giving fit into saving? This is a difficult question to answer. I am definitely not an expert. I DO know that there are many families in the world who have no money to save or budget. They do not even have food, water or much of a future. This breaks my heart.
I have visited poverty-stricken people in Brazil, Turkey and Vietnam on service trips. The conditions they live in SPUR me to give. Their stories cause me to think twice before purchasing frivolous items. I have been forced to wonder why I am so blessed. Thus, I am compelled to give.
Did you know you could change a family’s future by giving 2 chickens for $25? You could also give the gift of clean water for the same price. This astounds me.
I am impelled to help poverty-stricken people due to my experiences. You may not feel the same way. I do urge you to think about giving to an organization you believe in. This could be your church, The Salvation Army, and etc. HERE are 12 great giving quotes from a blog written by someone who really knows how to save!
