What are you willing to give me?

“One of the Twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, ‘What are you willing to give me if I hand him over to you?’ They paid him thirty pieces of silver, and from that time on he looked for an opportunity to hand him over.” (MT 26: 14-16)

Demanders always look for rewards. They can invest, they can give something but it is important what that they will have something for themselves. A giver always looks for occasions to make a surprise, to bring happiness to others; is happy being a free and creative gift of self. They feel joyful, because his/her joy doesn’t come from what he/she receives, but from bringing others smiles and joy.

“Hail to you, our King; you alone are compassionate with our errors.” (Gospel Acclamation)
