Giving is a giant lever positioned on the fulcrum of this world, allowing us to move mountains in the next world. Because we give, eternity will be different—for others and for us. . . . Giving doesn’t strip me of vested interests; rather, it shifts my vested interests from earth to heaven—from self to God. Of course, money isn’t all I can give. Time, wisdom, and expertise are wonderful gifts. Giving in any form breaks affluenza’s fever. Giving breaks me free from the gravitational hold of money and possessions. Giving shifts me to a new center of gravity—heaven.
