Philip Makari has a little to say about giving which is good, “Here I speak of a special type of giving, the giving of our total selves first to God. It is the giving of body, soul and spirit for God’s use that we may achieve, for ourselves and for others, the higher ends of God.

This is not, as you can see, charity giving. This is dedication giving. It is the giving of who and what we are. It is the type of giving expressed in a an engraved picture on one of the ancient cathedrals in Europe where an apostle stands between an altar and a plough, the symbols of dieing and serving, with the inscription, ‘READY FOR EITHER.”

This rule of sacrificially giving of ourselves that we might prepare the way of the Lord is like the case in all the experiences of life.

It is a common- sense rule that applies to all the situations of life:

Without serving that which we need to achieve, we simply can’t achieve it.

Life is a series of giving’s that we might gain.

Only where there is input can we expect an output.

Only when we deposit, can we expect return.

Don’t participate, don’t expect. No pain, no gain.

Nothing comes from nothing, nothing ever could.”
