Give by Taking

Updated: Jun 17, 2019

When my mom died, people brought over way more food than we could eat. I started telling people to please stop trying to help.

But my dad taught me a lesson that day. he said, “help them, by letting them help you, Ross.”

I have a friend that I help in lots of ways. He really owns nothing that I want, but I have learned that when he wants to give me something, even if I know he loves it much more than I would, I will gratefully accept it. It is less important for him to own that beloved possession than it is for him to learn the joy of sacrificial giving that Jesus uses to water his soul.

"I can't tell you how moved I was with what you did. Your demeanor, skill, the videos, everything from the slight movements, and the cadence. It was so amazing."
