"If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may
boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing."  1 Corinthians 13:3

One secret of abundant living is the art of giving.  The paradox of life is
that the more we give, the more we have.  If we lose our lives in the
service of others, we will save it.  We can give abundantly and so live
abundantly.  We are rich in one respect--we have a spirit that is
inexhaustible.  We need let no mean or selfish thought keep us from sharing
this spirit.  Of love, of help, of understanding, and of sympathy, we can
give and keep giving.  We can give our personal ease and comfort, our time,
our money, and most of all ourselves.  And we will be living abundantly.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may live to give.  I pray that I may learn the secret of
abundant living.

home.  We pray for a deep and profound respect for life, and for the courage
and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!

May God Bless you and those you love, and keep you safe!
