To give and to receive

29 May

I’m sitting in another mans table,  in another mans house writing this blog and I guess it’s fair to say I am blown away by other people generosity right now. There is an old saying that goes ” it’s harder to give than to receive” but I think I’m inclined to disagree.

Someone said to me this morning that pride can ruin a person and I guess that’s true. I am often inclined to try to be a self made man but I’m not sure that this has ever been done. If the recent weeks have taught me anything it’s the fact that I am so dependent on others, that there is much I can’t do for myself. That it is in fact arrogant and proud not to accept anothers help. It sure seems easier to give than to receive.

    I totally agree, one of the hardest things to accept when in ministry, especially early on. Doesn’t get a lot easier either, but as one lady told us – “don’t cheat me out of a blessing”.
