Expect Nothing In Return


I just read this blog post at Get Togetha and it was so awesome I had to share...

There are only two emotions: love and fear. When we we give based on strings it is a subtle form of manipulation. Manipulation is fear. When we give through a tiny yet powerful act called love we understand that what we give to others we give to ourselves whether its reciprocated or not. When we give from love the good things overflow in abundance.

49 Second Solution: We all slip up when it comes to the “what’s in it for me?’ syndrome. Recognize when you are giving from a place of love and a when you are giving from place of fear. Give selflessly and expect nothing in return. Yup. It’s that simple. But only practice makes perfect.

Please visit the original post to read the full article. It's totally worth it!

Thanks for linking to my blog. I only spoke from my heart; which sometimes irritates readers; but when you live and walk in truth its incredibly liberating.

I wasn't sure which blog to comment on, so I just randomly chose one!

The Shack actually turned out to be a pretty good read. I was iffy at first, but it really made me think about my own faith and the way I think about some things. You should read it soon!

I will definitely have fun at church camp! Thank you:) I'm so excited!

I remember hearing this on an Oprah show and it has stuck with me. Whenever I face difficult situations I think back to this. Love it.
