We find it difficult to give a portion of the pie when we know that it’ll be gone shortly. We will then give it out but to an extent that will ensure that what we have far exceeds what we’re giving.
It’d be a lot easier for us to give a piece of our pie to someone that will give us a piece of theirs in return.
In life, there are two types of giving: reciprocal giving, we give in the hope of receiving. And relinquished giving, we give in the hope of it being received.
Remember, it’s not a fixed pie. It’s never going to be gone. It’s a divinely equation, we take care of our giving and God will take care of our receiving.
