Today’s insight journey led me to the idea that spare change can change your life. Most of us, on any given day, find ourselves in the possession of some loose change, whether it’s because we purchase something and receive change from that purchase or we stumble across some loose change amongst the cushions of a sofa.
Now, there are a number of things that we can do with that change – feed a parking meter, pay a toll booth, or even buy a pack of gum. Or, if we are feeling generous, we can give that money to someone who is in need. Sure, it may not be a lot of money to us, but to someone who is in need it can be the difference between having a full stomach or an empty belly.
The truth of the matter is that giving that change to a person who is in need has the potential to do so much more than solely offer the provision of a meal. Giving that money to a person who is in need has the potential to reinforce the existence of human kindness, as well as fill both the giver and the recipient with a heightened sense of compassion and joy, blessing both the giver and recipient simultaneously.
The blessings that we experience when we give to those who are in need are immeasurable and incomparable, and my hope is that we will all give it a try. #lovebythedrop
