Scripture @ Sunrise 10.23.08

“…It is more blessed to give than to receive.” -Acts 20:35

We are not often called to great sacrifice, but daily we are presented with the chance to make small ones—a chance to make someone cheerful, a chance to do some small thing to make someone comfortable or contented, a chance to lay down our petty preferences or cherished plans. This requires us to relinquish something—our own convenience or comfort, our won free evening, our warm
fireside, or even our habitual shyness, reserve or pride. –Elisabeth Elliot
