You Were Made to Give


Why am I here?  Why was I born? What is my purpose?  To give.

Our very existence here on earth is a call to give.  Sure there are times when we have no interest in fulfilling that call.  There are most certainly moments in our lives when we do the exact opposite of give.  In fact, there are people who have so effectively accomplished living in opposition to giving that they have been awarded monikers such as Scrooge, Grinch or Miser.  It’s important to note here that those whose lives are characterized by greed and selfishness are generally known to be lonely and shallow. No doubt they live in opulence, but their lives lack true meaning or real impact. You cannot live a fulfilling life selfishly.

We do not exist to horde up or to egotistically take take take.  We were made to give - to contribute - to produce. We were made to make an impact in this world by giving of ourselves.  When we accomplish this purpose, we realize our greatest fulfillment. When we accept the calling to give of ourselves, seek ways in which we can fulfill the calling to give and see the impact of the giving we have made, then we experience fulfillment in life.  

Put in eMite terms - Living is Giving.
