We have been talking about how God has blessed us (materially and financially) and that we in turn ought to be blessing others (materially and financially).
That sharing of blessing invovles helping those on the margins of society, the homeless, poor, sick etc. And whenever we talk about such things there are those who become upset and very defensive....I was trying to figure out why that is (beyond the obvious fact that we highly value money. It along with our kids are the closet things to our heart) and maybe it is the fact that we just dont want to share.
One of the first things we try to teach our kids as they begin to play with others is that they need to share. But it seems the older we get someone needs to teach us to share.
