Amen! We need to become good receivers.

This is a good message, especially for those of us who constantly want to give, give, give and are terribly afraid of what receiving can/will do.
Amen. It is all part of the giving circle.
We need to learn to receive graciously and say thank you. This is a good reminder, Mitch!
I use to be a bad receiver of gifts.
I have since discovered the joy of receiving.
This is a great post..
Thank you! It was my sister who reminded me years ago, to cast my burden away as a big sister and giver, and be vulnerable, receive love and help from my little sisters!
Wise lesson from a little sister!
It was my first time learning to receive!
May you have a blessed year! 🙂
You too, Andreea!
Amen. When the Lord pours though is we beat that prideful self that wants it all.
My mother taught me this lesson several years ago. I was going through a very difficult time and my Mom was trying to help me even though she had very limited finances herself. I felt very badly about taking anything from her until she reminded me that God blesses the gift and the giver and that by refusing to accept her gift, I was denying her a blessing from God.
Right on, Mom.
