Lately, i have had the opportunity to volunteer at a couple of events where i GIVE out stuff. Slices of cake at one, pens and pins at another one.
What i find very sad is that there are so many people out there who are needy. If it's free, they want it, they need it, can they have 2? Their eyes are glowing, their fingers are in a grabbing mode. They feel entitled, worthy and deserving of anything they can get! GIMME, GIMME!
I remember feeling like that, years ago, before I had Christ in my life. I was so cranky all the time, never happy with what i had or was, trying to fill the gap with things. I was so wrong!
Now that i have realized that Christ was the missing puzzle piece, it is so wonderful to know that the free piece of cake, or pen, or T-Shirt are nice, but definitely not necessary to my survival.
Somehow, i am not so starving for give-aways because i have ALL i need from God Himself! And, since He has promised to take care of me, i know that manna will come down from heaven from Him if i become THAT hungry.
I deserve nothing and am so thankful for God's Grace. i keep rejecting Him, then i apologize, and He always takes me back! Now, that's not religion, that is unconditional love!
