Joy in giving

“… we like giving; but why do we enjoy it so much?  Because the essence of giving is love.  The secret to the joy of giving is that giving partakes in eternity, it expresses in concrete form the final utterance of life, and it shares in the Son’s giving to the Father.  Whatever you are privileged today to give in the name of love participates in that final action of love, the giving of all we have back to God who is love.” (p 170)

Have you every considered that you are connected to God’s eternal love in your every act of giving and loving?  It’s worth thinking about.
