On this day of your life, Paul, we believe God wants you to know … that your ability to receive is equally important to your ability to give.
Have you ever brought a special gift, working hard just to get it, only to be refused by the person you were giving it to? That didn’t feel right, did it? Our relationships are greatly enhanced when we become not only generous givers, but generous receivers as well. When we know how to accept gladly, wholeheartedly, embracing the gift as an extension of the giver. It takes both giving and receiving for care and generosity to flow unimpeded.
