Write to Joyce
Let each man give according as he has determined in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver. – 2 Corinthians 9:7, WEB
When we give only because we expect something in return, it is most likely that people will fail us and not meet our expectations of them. This can happen in big things as well as in the little things. It can happen with total strangers and it can happen with people who are close to us.
Must we continue to feel disappointed and sad because our gifts have not returned for us the fruits we wanted to have? Must our happiness depend upon how others would react towards our generosity?
Let us turn to God to fill all our needs. And when we are fully satisfied, let us then give what we can with a happy heart!
They who are truly rich are those who can joyfully give without expecting anything in return.
