Keep Giving

Written by Julie

On July 19, 2021

“Go break the needy sweet charity’s bread
For giving is loving,” the Angel said.
“And must I keep giving again and again?”
My angry and pitiless answer ran.
“Oh, no,” said the Angel–piercing me through–
“Just give till the Master stops giving to you.”

We so freely receive but struggle to freely give. We’re often like reservoirs, holding in all the grace and gifts, instead of rivers, letting it all flow through us to others. We accept the bountiful measures of grace lavished on us but dish out only scant teaspoons–if even that much–to others.

What if we would remember that we only have to give until God–the One we’re imitating, after all–stops giving to us? Would that perhaps affect our attitude and generosity and intentionality? (It should.)

The heavens speak of God–do we listen, pay attention? The earth is full of God’s riches–do we seek and cherish them? The beauty of Jesus can be found in ordinary today–do we pause to see and admire?
