Most of us a quite aware of the importance of giving. We here in the US are blessed with an over abundance of almost everything. We talk about giving and being generous all the time.
The real question for us is:
What kind of receiver are you?
Are you the kind of receiver who delights when someone takes the time and energy to do something for you?
Are you the kind of receiver who thinks silently to yourself “it’s about time somebody did something for me”.
Are you the kind of timid receiver who retorts with “not being worthy”or “I don’t need help”, thereby denying the giver of the pleasure and benefit of giving of themselves?
Food for thought on this Labor Day.
