There is a book about a tree that loses its purpose when it can no longer give a young boy what he needs. Do you remember what book I am referring to? The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein... Oh my--- it is such a sweet story that speaks to kids and adults and everyone in between. The giving tree needed to give to live.
There is a great sea on the other side of our world that is a giver as well.
The Sea of Galilee is fed by the Jordan river and feeds itself back into the Jordan in the south.
Because it receives and in turn gives-- everything in and around it thrives and survives.
There is a song by Switchfoot about moving on, not looking back, and helping our world. Dare you to move is one of my favorite songs and is a reminder to pick myself up off the floor and serve the world regardless of my circumstances.
When you give you live.
When you give HE lives.
When you give others live too.
In living there is loving.
Live in love this week and give until you have nothing left to give.
