When Enough isn’t

That which we do to or for others, we inflict or provide to ourselves.

Being generous is, as I have found, quite a pleasant endeavor. As long as I am able to identify and be honest about my expectations. You see, I have a hard time being honest with myself about that. I tend to expect some gratitude and maybe even an offer of a gift in kind. I have to resist this in order to gain the full benefit of unconditional generosity.

If I demand that I get something out of it, I will find myself intensely craving satisfaction. I become greedy. I am filled up when I give freely and want what I have and am grateful for what I have been blessed with.

 

Thank you, Papa, for providing exactly just what I need and for the opportunity to offer what I have to others. Amen

  1. Thank you for this post, it is very insightful and correct! Greed is a killer of people and souls. God said The LOVE of money is the root of all evil. We have greed of many kinds to deal with here on earth. I like the ideas on giving gifts as well. Do so expecting nothing more than the warmth of the experience!

      1. Cool. I was also going to say that the whole “give and take” thing was on my mind the other day. We think along the same lines sometimes. Anyway, keep sharing the photos… and have a beautiful day!!
