Put your money where your mouth is

Gratitude


We’ve already spoken about how important being a giving person is to being a married person. Previously, we were talking about stretching our giving muscles by sharing our time. Today we’re going to put our money where our mouth is.

How important is charity in your life? Do you have charities you give to regularly, or do you save up and wait for someone to ask? There are many benefits to giving to a worthy cause, but I want to talk about two more.

Just as we said before, the practice of giving helps to shape you into a giving person – which is going to be one of the primary things that makes you a great spouse. Giving money can sometimes be even more difficult than giving time – our time is a gift we are given, but we work hard to earn our money. But even with our hard work, it’s important to keep in mind that success is also a gift. Is this something you find a little extra challenging? Great! It will be even better practice! Set aside a little bit of money every day with real intention – this is you helping others and becoming a giving person. The other side benefit I’m going to suggest has to do with where you give. There are charities out there who provide for poor couples to have a wedding. If you’re longing for your own wedding, I recommend putting a little good into the world in the same place you’d most like it to come back around. This will keep you focused…and you might also be surprised just how fast that good comes back your way.
