On Giving

"Jesus sat down opposite the treasury and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents. Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, “Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood.” - Mark 12:41–44 

 Christmas is just around the corner. It's time again for love and giving.
Giving is a "big" word for someone who is deprived of things as basic as food.
Giving is a "huge" concept for someone who is denied of justice.
And giving is a "monumental" idea for someone who is disputed of his rights.
Blessed are those who despite of being hungry can share whatever he has in his plate.
Blessed are those who in spite of  being wrongly accused can forgive his accuser.
And blessed are those who after being stripped of his right can love without reservation.
Love is present in giving.
You can give without love but you cannot love without giving.
A giving heart is burning with love.
For those who give for the sake of giving... a less love is received.
For those who give out of love... love is over-flowing.
And for those who give and who love... they are blessed and loved.
Let us love and give.
Let us give love.
And let us be grateful of the love that we are given.
