Exodus: How Can We Give?
Granted, this approach to life is contrary to the world’s. Living this way may or may not make us popular. The boss will probably love us, but our follow workers, not necessarily. Those who want to get by with a minimum of work don’t want anyone around who shows them up. They may believe we’re “kissing up” to the boss. But on the other hand, acting responsibility sometimes gives the opportunity to talk about the One for whom we really work. < @> The focus of our lives should become, not how much we can get out of life, but how much we can give. This giving may be time, money, and/or ourselves. It can be difficult to balance this with the desire to protect ourselves from being taken advantage of.
Application: Can you think of any other practical ways we can give to those around us instead of taking?
