It is much better to give then receive. It is best when you give expecting nothing in return. When you give, do it because you wish to help the other person. Be humble in giving and consider yourself lucky that you are able to do this.

Do not give while seeking the spotlight or a pat on the back. Give and do it without drawing attention. When you have to voice out loud that you have given, you lose all the credit.

Giving is a good thing. Seeking credit for your gifts is not very admirable and very fake. People who give in order to be praised don't have a clue.
