“Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting.”
Have you ever thought about the people around who seem to have to announce to the world every contribution they make? They also seem to be the people who are the unhappiest in life….they seem unhappy with their family, friends, work, even themselves…..nothing brings them joy. They need to validate their works, so they shout them from the roof tops. Then there are the rest….often the people you seldom notice…..but take a closer look at them. They are the ones who are always there, with a smile and a good word for all. They are quiet, sometimes even meek, but they exude joy from every pore…every ounce of their being. They do good simply because it feels good to them. They are the ones we don’t notice as much because they are the ones who already know God. It’s the first group we need to reach out to….the first group who’s hearts need to be touched. And while everyone needs God, isn’t it the sinner more than the saint, that needs a pastor and a church?
