"Give and it will be given to you. A good measure...will be poured into your lap."
No, you might not get back as many Halloween goodies as you give out, but there's definite merit to those Gospel words. What I often need to remind myself of is that you aren't always going to receive from the same person to whom you gave. Give your time, give your money, give your talent, give your love...whatever you can afford, put it out there. And you will receive.
