7 Simple No-Cost Ways to Be a Giver in the New Year

A little boy stopped to admire a shiny, brand-new sports car parked on a quiet street in his neighborhood.  He slowly walked around the amazing vehicle, savoring every detail. As he leaned against the window to get a better view of the inside, the voice of Bob, the owner, coming up behind startled him.

Bob asked the little boy, “You like my car?”  “Oh yeah, mister.  It’s awesome,” was the reply.

The proud owner said, “My brother gave it to me for Christmas.”

“Your brother gave it to you?  You didn’t pay anything for it?” the young boy asked.

“Yep, my brother gave it to me.  It didn’t cost me a penny.”

“Wow – I wish….,” the young boy began.  And of course Bob knew how he would finish the sentence  “……I wish I had a brother like that.”

But Bob was stunned when the little boy said, “I wish I could be a brother like that.”

As we head into the New Year, think about how you can be a brother or a sister like that. Not by giving away shiny new sports cars, but by giving of yourself. No strings attached. No payment necessary. 

Here are 7 Simple No-Cost Ways to Be a Giver

    • Be kind
    • Listen without giving advice
    • Reach out to someone who may be alone
    • Be honest, but show love and respect even when you disagree with someone
    • Celebrate one another’s successes
    • Bear one another’s burdens
    • Show honest appreciation every chance you get

We all have so many gifts to share with a hurting world. In a world where you can be anything, be a giver of kindness and appreciation.
