Taking vs Receiving

There’s no getting, because we are not in control. There’s receiving, because of what is given back to us. We might think we are taking, but we are only receiving.

It’s like getting asked to sit at the head of the table because we gave so much to the family, the community. We didn’t do it to sit at the head of the table, we did it because it’s what we do.

And what an honor it is.

Forget the taking or the receiving.

Give.
