I love giving. I like to just surprise someone and watch their face. I have given money, cars and food and my heart is happy for doing everything I did and I don't expect anything from anyone. I am only saying this because you dont know me or the people who I helped.

Giving must come from the heart.. not on a whim, fanfare or fashion. If you do give for real from your heart you don' have to be " what about me?' Because the lord will..supply all my needs ( which we all should know) and some of our wants.that was what I try to explain to people here.God has been so good to me
I am happy to do something for others/ It's not about me.
It's handy because I can.not walk in a walk-a-long miles and miles. So that why I ask them let'do musical. God will work it out. Thanks! All

God wants us to be cheerful givers. If we are cheerful we will not be worrying about losing. Sounds like a heart issue.

Giving means giving with all our hearts with no grudges after, but being ready to more giving. It is better to give than to receive. I have given all my life and feel so good each time and knowing that it helps someone. God continues to bless me in many ways...Praise Him

I do not associate giving with loosing. Just the opposite is true.
2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

Giving is when a person eagerly sacrifices himself or what he owns, without asking for anything in return, to the betterment of others which glorifies God. 1Tim6:17-19, 2Cor9:6-7, Matt6:1-4, Pro14:21, 19:17, 22:9, and last, but not least, 1John3:16-18

When Jesus gave his love to the world he had the love of the Father, just as we do.
Giving is gaining even if we suffer need.
I don't associate giving with losing, not since I gained Christ's freedom.

if you associate giving with loosing you are lost. giving makes you a winner not a looser,whether people accept that or not is their problem. I give always,because its Gods nature to give, his word says it is more blessed to give than receive.giving changes you, and thats what God wants.
