Porch Swing Tip of the Week: Giving and Receiving

You may be familiar with the saying, it is more blessed to give than to receive. At this time of year, it would be logical to think this is totally about gift giving. But think of all the ways you could bless other people by giving that have nothing to do with an actual material gift!

What about the gift of listening? People want to know that you care about what they have to say, so lend your ear! (You’ll get it back when they’re done.) What about the gift of time? We’re all busy so it’s a great sacrifice to stop what you’re doing and spend unhurried time with someone, especially if they’re sad or lonely. And here’s one that just might smart a little: your undivided attention. Show your loved one how much they mean to you by putting away your device(s); prove that he or she is more important to you than whatever could possibly come up in your social media.

Then there is that good, old-fashioned hug, where the giving and receiving are simultaneous!

So, what stories can we help you with?
