Giving

AN unchanging law is put into operation by giving. An old adage says, "The hand of the giver is filled." Whatever supply comes to us, whether it be money, strength, or understanding, by giving of it wisely we do not rob ourselves. We should realize there is no way of limiting the source from which good comes, and that even money is of most benefit to the most people when it is in circulation. Strength is increased when used righteously; and understanding put into practice lifts, not only ourselves, but those around us nearer to perfection.

In drawing water from the faucet one thinks, How like giving! As it is drawn out, more comes; there is no vacuum, whether it pours out fast or slow. Whether a glassful or a tubful be needed, the supply fills the demand. When shut off, one deprives one's self; and there is nothing to pass to others. Not only so, but the big standpipe overflows if the water is not used. It is also an entire loss when it pours over the sides of the high tower.
