“For it is in giving that we receive.” ― St. Francis of Assisi
“And this is it. This is the life we get here on earth. We get to give away what we receive. We get to believe in each other. We get to forgive and be forgiven. We get to love imperfectly. And we never know what effect it will have for years to come. And all of it…all of it is completely worth it.” ― Nadia Bolz-Weber,
Jesus said to care for the least of these (Matthew 25:45).
Jesus said to give what you can, no matter how little that may be (Luke 21:1-4).
As humans we spend a lot of time focusing on what we don’t have. We’re worried we’ll never have enough and that we’ll lose what we already have. For many this is a reality. Too many people are unable to provide for themselves and their families.
Yet many times, we have more than we think. We often believe that we don’t have enough to help our neighbor in need. But we all have something to offer, whether it be time and/or resources. Think instead about what you have vs. what you don’t have. How can you sacrifice some of your own abundance to help someone else?
But what does that look like in practice?
At Social Thread we’ve partnered with nonprofit and social good organizations that are making a positive impact on those in-need.
If you are interested in joining us in supporting an organization or movement with your time and talents we’d love to hear from you. Click here and let us know!
Another way you can practice generosity is to pick a nonprofit, charity, or cause that is meaningful to you. Make a $10 donation to the organization of your choosing. If you appreciate the work Social Thread is doing we’d be honored if you considered supporting what we’re building.
How did it feel to be generous? What did you give-up to make the donation? Did it make you feel like you had less or more?
With Social Thread we help you explore your faith on your own terms through connecting you with others who are on a similar journey.
