Jesus said in Mark 10:45 NASB, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” His entire mission and its purpose was to be a giver. Time and time again, we are reminded in scripture of the importance of being a giver. Proverbs 11:25 NASB says, “The generous man will be prosperous, and he who waters will himself be watered.” Proverbs 21:26 NASB reads, “The righteous gives and does not hold back.” And Proverbs 22:9 NASB says, “He who is generous will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.” It was Winston Churchill who said, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
