My youngest daughter was insistent that I take her candy. I tried to refuse because I knew it was her last. She said “Mom! Take it! Janey will have more for me!”
She gave freely because she had freely received and as far as she knows the supply of candy will always be there.
Do we love the same way? Do we share Jesus freely? Or do we become possessive of our gifts—forgiveness, grace and mercy to the point that we don’t want to share it with others because we want it only for ourselves? Because we deem only ourselves worthy of such great gifts?
The gifts Jesus has bestowed upon you are abundant, endless. Don’t be stingy with what you have received. Freely give.
