Research Says, “Givers Also Get”
“While most people probably subscribe to the general theory that charity is ‘good for the soul,’ almost all would be hard-pressed to say why. Many would also be surprised to learn that philanthropic acts are also good for the mind and body. Research is beginning to confirm these claims. These emerging findings can transform the way people live and feel about themselves . . . philanthropic involvement is measurably wholesome for mind, body, and soul.” [Give to Live, Douglas M. Lawson]
Of course, that research is not new information. The Bible has been telling us for two thousand years that giving is more blessed than receiving.
