Save to Give - Without Missing It
One of my passions is missions. I love to help others. I have always been the type of individual to tithe at church and give a donation here and there throughout the year, but I wanted to do more.
Last year I decided that in order to do more, I needed to be more intentional in my giving. What would that look like and how would I do it?
I wanted to set aside money to sponsor a child in another country and I wanted to have extra money available if an opportunity came up to help someone in need. I determined the best solution for me would be to open what I call a “Giving” checking account, so I did just that.
Now, I have a certain dollar amount deducted from my payroll and directly deposited into my “Giving" account. It isn’t a large amount and I have quickly become accustomed to not having that in my regular deposit…I never miss it.
Today, I am proud to sponsor a beautiful little girl in the Dominican Republic through SCORE International. And thanks to my Giving Account, I also have money set aside that I can use when other giving opportunities come up.
For me…it was all about being intentional. What about you? Should you Save so you can Give to others?
