Gift of self

September 11, 2014 11:15 am

“Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” (Lk 6: 38)

We know that demands can destroy any relationship. Behind my demands I have my vision (so often very idealistic) of another person, my expectations, and my rights. Being oriented to giving helps me understand the needs of the other person. The more we give, the more we receive.

“If we love one another, God remains in us, and his love is brought to perfection in us.” (Gospel Acclamation)
