‘DIVERSIFY YOUR GIVING’
A Spiritual View of Charitable Giving
FTMDaily.com – On yesterday’s podcast, I spent some time explaining a Biblical view of charitable giving. The voluntary and sacrificial act of giving of our financial resources to those in need is one of the most vital components of a solid financial plan.
Those who fail to plan their giving often fail to give at all.
In addition to this weekend’s podcast on giving, FTMDaily also offers a free Charitable Giving Worksheet for you and your family. (Download it here.)
Just as it is nearly impossible to successfully navigate a sea vessel without a map and an understanding of how coordinates work, it is likewise very difficult for us as individuals to successfully give money the way that we may want to without first mapping out a charitable giving strategy.
This Charitable Giving Worksheet will challenge you to think differently about giving. The worksheet includes:
- Six Ways to Diversify Your Giving
- Six Giving Methods (Other than Cash)
- Plus, you will be challenged with 15 powerful questions that will help you deeply examine and formulate your own philosophy on charitable giving.
When we learn the value of real giving, we will find it brings a greater sense of joy, satisfaction, and meaning to our lives.
And it is certainly true that sharing our resources with others that we love, those who are less fortunate, and with causes that we support, often brings greater satisfaction and joy than simply consuming all of our resources upon our own desires.
At FTMDaily, you have learned the importance of diversifying your investments. You have also heard me explain that it is important to diversify your savings and your sources of income.
Now, it’s time to learn the benefits of diversifying your charitable giving. Once you do, your life will become richer in more ways than you can imagine.
