It is better to give than to receive is a phrase that we grow into. Not many children get it. Not many teens get it. Honestly, not many adults get it. It has taken me a while and I thought I got it but I think this Christmas that lesson finally clicked in a profound way. There is no amazing story to tell. There is no deep philosophical point to make. I just didn’t care what I got for Christmas this year and absolutely loved watching others receive what we picked out for them. I am sure that when you have kids this lesson becomes more obvious but it has taken me a while to not only think this is true but to actually feel it.
I have complied a single page list of prayer prompts from two sources and added a list of my own.
