A One-Way Street

I remember when I was first trying to grasp the concept of social media, I was told that people would respond to me if I responded to their posts. It makes sense, right? However, I noticed quickly that there are some who are all about posting and getting likes and comments but never reciprocate.

With some people, giving will always be a one-way Street. You will be quick to give, and they will be quick to receive. Although we as givers do not expect in return, there will be some who will drain us dry. They will come to the point of asking and expecting.

Jesus made this awesome statement: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” God has wired us to be givers. We find our greatest joy when we give. If you really examine the life of a selfish person, you will be an unhappy person. Selfish people are never fully satisfied.

When it comes to the one-way street, I want to be on the giving end with no expectation of receiving. God will reward me with the joy of giving, and that is enough.
