You Can Only Give Away What You Already Have Inside

True giving happens when you are overflowing from the inside, and cannot help but share. When there is so much love within you that it has to flow to others or you would burst open. There is no thinking involved, no willpower in such sharing. It just flows out. If you have to force yourself to be kind, to love, to feel compassion, you've missed the first step of filling in your own Self with these emotions.

The apostle Paul in Acts 20:35 says "I have shown you in all things that by working hard in this way we must help the weak, remembering the words that the Lord Jesus himself said, 'There is more happiness in giving than in receiving.'"

True giving should not be forced but when we love our neighbour as we love ourselves (Galatians 5:13-14) we will truly and happily give from the heart.
