donor, in general, is a person which donates something voluntarily.
coin a phrase: The hand that gives is above the hand that receives.
And it's better to give than to receive.
donor is the one who knows the importance of giving, of sowing in the
life of other people. For he knows at the suitable time, he'd eat the
fruits of his seed (He'll reap what he sowed.).
God's word encourages us in this sense:
Ship your grain across the sea; after many days you may receive a

disaster may come upon the land.

solved. For as long as we'll be on earth, problems will come.
a wise man knows that at the right time, he must sow in the life of
people. Chiefly in God's things in order to attract God's mercy on
him like Cornelius.
got the Divine visitation not only because of his prayers, but also
because he was a donor. Chiefly for the things of God's kingdom.
One day at about three in the afternoon he had a vision.

angel answered, “Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come
up as a memorial offering before God".
this life, it is true that we sometimes meet people who are not
grateful for the acts of generosity that we make towards them, and
who give us back the monkey currency. As a human being, we can become
reluctant to give or to do good. However, we should know that if we
look only at men, we couldn't be donors. We should look at God our
Father, He who said: It's mine to avenge; I will repay (Deuteronomy
32:35; Romans 12:19) and "will repay each person according to
what they have done”. (Romans 2:6).
if one person wasn't grateful, some others will be, like with Tabitha
that Dorcas had done good, returned her services after her death by
looking for Peter and by showing to Peter what she had done for them
when she was alive. And that attracted the anointing upon God's
servant who had something to show to God when he interceded so that
Tabitha “Dorcas” raises from the dead. Acts 9:36-42.
true that we aren't saved by the works (Ephesians 2:9), but it is by
grace we have been saved, through faith—and this is not from
ourselves, it is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8).
He who is saved will produce fruit worthy of repentance. For Tabitha
and Cornelius, their works have spoken for them and attracted God's
mercy upon them.
widow of Zarephath had survived at the dryness, because she was a
donor. She had sowed in the life of God's servant Elijah. Without
this act of generosity, she'll certainly die with her child and her
story wouldn't have been written in the Bible. 1 Kings 17:10...
shunammite got a child because of her generosity to the man of God
(Elisha). She was a donor and had opened her heart. 2 Kings 4:8.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will
reap a harvest if we do not give up.
because the shunammite and the widow of Zarephath didn't stop their
acts of generosity, God had used Elijah for the widow and Elisha for
the Shunnamite for raising their children from the dead.
if they had stopped their acts of generosity, the story would be
ended with these deaths.

greatest sacrifice, it's given his life for others. And Jesus Christ
had done it. He gave His life in order that we can share in with Him
in God's glory. Jesus Christ, the greatest donor. He gave his own
life in order that we be saved.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the
Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting
