Give, Give Give… till it hurts your soul

July 11, 2010: What I Am Reading This Week

“…Often we are inclined to give, give, and
give without ever asking anything in return.  We may think
that this is a sign of generosity or even heroism.  But it
might be little else than a proud attitude that says:  “I
don’t need help from others.  I only want to give.”

There is a time to give and a time to receive.  We need
equal time for both if we want to live healthy lives.”

Henri Nouwen
