Give Away

Sunday our preacher used the passage of the rich young man who asked what he must do to earn eternal life. He turned away after hearing “Go sell all you possess…” The lesson was on giving. This is something I had written a couple of months ago

Keep only what you give away.
Your thoughts for the day
A hug and a kiss for that special someone.
A poem on a card, a word of encouragement.
Let nothing you treasure be hoarded,
hidden, buried:
the love that needs expressed,
a gift of time, a dainty morsel, a favorite novel;
a flower planted, nourished, shared—
The blessings given,
you will receive again.
