The value of giving.
The subtitle of this post is the "The value of giving," an apt title for how I think og my work.
I spend hours writing posts, and stories, for what reason?
I give to you, I hope the pleasure of reading what I am thinking of, but I get no idea if you enjoy the posts.
To me, it is a one-way street.
When I think of the modern televangelists, I get reminded of the story of the "Widow's mite" in the Scriptures.
At the front of the church a rich man made a big show of giving a lot, while at the rear of the church a poor widow gave what she could not afford, as she had little to provide the widow hid what she offered.
It isn't about how much you give; the value comes from how you can provide.
Before I knew that Martha Borg was with the Jimmy Swaggert Ministries, I came across her and Grace Brumby, from where I can't recall.
As a writer my life was about giving, but I never got sales from the thousands of people who read this blog, so I need to re-evaluate my worth. Is it worth it to keep giving for no return?
