"Give as freely as you have received" What have you received this past week?
Well, let me see.
I have received love, joy, and peace.
Also three meals a day,a warm bed and roof over my head.
I have received phone calls from my friends.
I have received forgiveness from God and others.
I have received patience and love from my spouse.
There is a long list from which I benefit. Since it is a blessing to receive it all it is a greater blessing to give it all.
So now this week it is my privilege to give help to others; to give friendship to the lonely; to give forgiveness to those who offend me; to give patience to those who irritate me and to give love to everyone I meet.
