Give till it hurts
We've all heard this phrase before about how much we should give. It's a good sentiment, but it's not the most accessible onramp towards giving. There are a lot of steps towards "giving till it hurts" that are also very good! Giving someone a measure of respect, or time, or kindness... those can change lives, and they usually don't hurt a bit! This we week, let's give what we can, when we can. It doesn't even have to hurt. In fact, you'll probably find that giving feels pretty great.
