Thoughts on: Giving

There is a phrase that’s been going around in my mind recently:

“To whom much is given, much will be required.”

Many of us are blessed with things that we’ve taken for granted over the years. Being born in a good family, having a home, getting to eat 3 times a day or more (guilty), having a bed, being able to pursue an education or the job we want, just to name a few. Chances are if you’re reading this then you have a bunch of blessings.

And yes, you can make it ‘big’ in life regardless of what your beginnings look like, but I think that we have to be grateful if we had those blessings growing up. It can make the road easier. Sometimes it’s those blessings that we didn’t work for that are easier to take for granted.

If we’ve been blessed I think we should constantly look for ways to be a blessing to others. So that just like we had blessings we didn’t work for, other people can have blessings that they didn’t work for.

Anyway, those were some of my thoughts on giving. What about yours?
