I had something happen to me recently that made me think of this. Of course, I am always seeing things as a message from God.
Open your hand and look at it. What do you see? Are you, a giver or a taker?
Some people will say they are a giver; they will say I give all the time to others, and in church, even to a man in the street. However, who will say I am a taker, and I will take advantage of whoever or whatever I can.
It is alright to take advantage of opportunities, but not people. The sun shines on all of us; that is a good thing. Just like we will are look at through God’s eyes the same way.
Shouldn’t a taker give back, and a giver received back the same? A taker cannot handle not being given; however, a giver knows about favor. That somewhere in life, they will get it back in life. It just may not be from the same person.
