I’m thinking about my motives…

DO YOU GIVE TO GET?

“I have sensed a growing discontent amongst many who are on their spiritual path. A common theme appears to be — ‘I have been serving God for so long and have given up so much and it has been such a struggle — when am I going to get my reward?’”
— Wendy Munroe

It’s interesting to become aware of how we participate in the dynamic exchange of giving and receiving. When we give, do we do so whole-heartedly? Or do we do so with the ulterior motive of wanting something in return?

It’s not wise to be always looking for a deal. The universe never short-changes us. We can afford to be generous. When something of value is given, something of value must be returned.

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
— Mother Teresa
