Giving

Randy Alcorn

The more you give, the more comes back to you, because God is the greatest giver in the universe, and He won’t let you outgive Him. Go ahead and try. See what happens.

Corrie Ten Boom

The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.”

Annie Johns Flint

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,

When our strength has failed ere that day is half done

 When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,

Our Father’s full giving has only begun.

His love has no limit,

His grace has no measure,

His power has no boundary known unto men;

For out of his infinite riches in Jesus,

He giveth, and giveth and giveth again.

He Giveth More Grace Hymn 1941

And while it lives it gives.

To give – and give – and give.

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.
