You can feel cheated, you can call it ‘click-bait’… whatever you want. But it’s true. Giving will make you wealthy beyond your wildest dreams. But, since you took the effort to click on this article, I guess I’ll tell you why giving is so important to your health, happiness, and yes, even your wealth.

Generosity is highly valued by societies all over the world and intuition tells us the act of giving is good….

A well-known Proverb says “Generous persons will prosper” (Proverbs 11:25, KJB) in other words, ‘Those who give, receive.” but that’s not all the Bible says about giving.

Christians Called To Charity

Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. -2 Corinthians 9:6–8

You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us, your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. — 2 Corinthians 9:11

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. — Luke 6:38

Those are great to get Christians in the art of giving, but it’s not just the Bible that states giving is important.

The value of giving spans cultures, religions, faiths, governments and societies. Giving also acts as an important means of establishing a “social safety net” for those in need. Check out these amazing religions in their acts and beliefs surrounded by giving:

Muslims Make Miracles Come True

Muslims partake in Waqf: a financial charitable endowment established by withholding immovable and movable properties to perpetually spend its revenue on fulfilling public needs.

Traditionally, Waqf was inculcated in Muslims’ culture and has since been utilized in all walks of life. Waqf was the main source for various public services that provided a multitude of assistance to communities. Therefore, Muslims all over the world joyfully participate in Waqf.

Helpful Hindu Hands

For Hindus, dana, or giving is an important part of one’s dharma, or their religious duty. Dharmahas a wide variety of meanings such as eternal law, duty, conduct, behavior, morality, and righteousness. Each person has a dharma towards family, society, the world, and all living things.

Dharma needs to be seen within the framework of the traditional extended Hindu family, which plays the role of a welfare state. The wealth a person acquires is not for oneself but for the welfare of others. One has a responsibility towards others who cannot maintain themselves. In some circumstances, an individual may have no option but to give up or compromise one’s personal goals for the sake of their family. In short, ‘giving’ begins at home but extends beyond the home.

According to the Hindu faith, any giving that is motivated by selfish considerations loses its value from the spiritual point of view.

It is not so much wealth that brings happiness and peace but our attitude to possessions. Hindu philosophical texts such as the Isa Upanishad point to the fact that true enjoyment and peace lie in detachment from wealth.

We are not asked to renounce wealth but rather our sense of possession. Whatever we give will have no value if we part with our wealth reluctantly.Isa Upanishad

This is a small example of some of the world’s major religions and how highly they hold the act of giving. I challenge you to do a little homework on the ‘art of giving’ and see if it inspires you. But, before you start that process, you should know a little secret…

Giving is not just a religious duty. It doesn’t merely bring gifts from a higher power in the afterlife. No, there’s more! Just like you were taught in science and mathematics, there’s a cause and effect to everything. Allow the Spiritual Laws of Success to break down some of the Bible verses and religious acts that allow the present-day rewards beyond our imagination.

Art of Giving is all about creating an unconditional and sustainable abundance of love, peace and happiness, and contentment for others through gestures of kindness and generosity.

“Riches are shy and timid. They have to be “attracted.”
― Napoleon Hill, Author “Think and Grow Rich:”all-time bestseller, having sold 15 million copies worldwide, setting the standard for today’s motivational thinking.

“Napoleon Hill, then a young special investigator for a nationally known business magazine, was sent to interview Andrew Carnegie. During that interview, Carnegie slyly dropped a hint of a certain master power he used — a magic law of the human mind, a little-known psychological principle — that was amazing in its power. Carnegie suggested to Hill that upon that principle he could build the philosophy of all personal success — whether it be measured in terms of money, power, position, prestige, influence, or the accumulation of wealth. That part of the interview never made it into Hill’s magazine, but it did launch the young author on a research journey that lasted twenty years. Think and Grow Rich is the result of Hill’s study of over five hundred self-made millionaires — a condensed, accessible explanation of his Law of Success philosophy, which includes thirteen steps to riches (financial, emotional, and spiritual).” Source.

A huge pattern Mr. Hill found with some of the world's wealthiest people was…

Spiritual Law of Success

In the study of the spiritual law of success, the Second Law of Giving and Receiving is based on the Universe operating through dynamic exchange. Everything in life falls between give and take because giving and receiving are different aspects of the flow of energy in the Universe. If the flow stops, there’s an interference with nature’s intelligence. Interchanging acts of giving and receiving keep a harmonious circulation in life.

The term currency derives from a Latin word meaning “to run or flow.

Money is symbolic of the life energy given and life energy received due to the service we provide to others.

Similar to a river, the currency must keep flowing, otherwise, a blockage is created and all becomes stagnate. A healthy circulation keeps flowing water alive and vital. If the circulation slows or stops, so does the life energy. Comparatively, when intentions are to hoard money, this stops its circulation back into our lives.

Intentions behind giving and receiving are of the utmost importance. When the act of giving is joyful, unconditional and from the heart, the positive energy behind giving increases many times over. While giving grudgingly, energy does not exist. If there’s a sense of loss through the act of giving, the gift is not truly given and the life energy will not exist.

When life energy doesn’t exist behind your actions, you may feel angry, depressed, alone, “empty,” or “broken-hearted.”

The Law of Giving & Receiving is Simple

If you want love, learn to give love; if you want attention and appreciation, learn to give attention and appreciation; if you want material affluence, help others to become materially affluent. If you want to be blessed with all the good things in life, learn to silently bless everyone with all the good things in life. The more you give, the more you will receive. In your willingness to give that which you seek, you will keep the abundance of the Universe circulating in your life.

Prosperity for the Poor

Abundance has material expression, but what is truly circulating is consciousness. Even the thought of giving, the thought of blessing, or a simple prayer has the great power to positively affect others. We are bundles of thought in a thinking Universe and thought has the power to transform.

What Giving Gives

“Generosity and compassion have been a focal point of research for decades, and studies have consistently shown that improved mood, better physical health, and increased longevity are connected to giving” Source. a powerful quote from a widely trust health journal.

Another known and respected medical article contributor, Positivity Psychology has stated, “It’s been known humans are born with an innate sense of compassion, recently science has provided evidence showing the benefits for fostering compassion; which includes an overall healthier future”. Source
