A brief review of three articles, on the benefits, of giving to our wealth building.
Brooks, Arthur C. “Giving Makes You Rich” www.portfolio.com Oct. 15, 2007
Professor Brooks of Syracuse University. Analyzed data from the Social Capital Community Benchmark and came up with evidence to support the premise that Giving Makes You Rich. He stated more giving doesn’t just correlate with higher income. It causes higher income.
Pavlina, Steve “Tithing”
Steve gives three benefits of tithing:
1) Tithing overcomes scarcity thinking. You’re programming your subconscious to believe in abundance
2) Tithing supports a worthy cause.
3) It motivates us to achieve greater wealth.
Steve also cites other ways to give. Your time, talents, information, encouragement…
He concludes with
“I felt better about the 10% I was giving away than the 90% I was using for myself.
Comments I did the study because I was asked to give a stewardship message at church, which I wrote on the back of a business card so it was very concise. I got a number of positive comments and there was a significant increase in pledges. Later when I put the last check in the plate to complete my tithe I felt really great.
I wonder if you could help me out by sharing a giving success story. Especially if giving helped you financially. Send your comments to my email.
My next article using Abe Lincoln’s style sheet will be smart spending.
