I believe it is, however .. we must remember to give to ourselves as well.
We shouldn't offer more than we are capable of .. especially if it means
We go without. I like to share .. but I've been burned doing so too many times. What's too many times .. how many times are we to Forgive and then try to forget.

There is plenty good reason those that could share .. give more .. don't.

Sharon .. is good in my opinion.

Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.

That was beautiful liam and accurate according to what I've been taught to believe and have faith in.

I do believe it is better to give than to receive more times than not. If only for one reason .. the one you gave to may really have been in need .. you may have as well, and if the only thing it did was to give them a smile and take your mind off your own troubles ... Win Win in my view.

Personally I get more satisfaction and happiness out of giving, then I do receiving. I mean like at Christmas or other gift-giving occasions, it kind of makes me almost uncomfortable to receive things. I have so much already! Certainly everything I need, and most everything I want. When I give a gift I like it to be something they don't have and wouldn't get for themselves, OR SOMETHING THEY REALLY NEED like giving to food banks, helping out at homeless shelters and things like that. In the wintertime, the gift of a warm coat and a hot meal and someone to just sit down and talk with them while they eat, can mean so much to someone.

Well that stone keeps on rolling
Bringing me some real bad news
The takers get the honey
