GIVE, NO RECEIVE

They expect nothing back. “Ask the animals and they will teach you.” – Job 12:7

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in all giving and no receiving [and I’m letting you know right now this will NOT be easy for me 😮]”)

You’re used to receiving and not giving.

You’re used to taking because of the lack.

Do you want to know about forgiving?

Give, no receive, expecting nothing back.

When I give, I expect recognition.

When I receive, I’m not sure the reason.

“What do they want from me? To go fishin’?”

The only hook I need is God-pleasin’.

“It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

Acts Twenty:35 – Yes, Jesus “Acts”

of giving, no receiving, led to heave

of selfish actions so God’s Love could max.

God doesn’t have any tricks up His Sleeve.

It’s not magic when we give, no receive.

    My brother and I recently had a discussion about this very topic. He is of the belief that it’s all about giving and not self focus.
