There is an argument about whether one person’s insulted over $1,000 because another received $1,000,000. As I considered how HUGELY I’d appreciate 1,000 or 100.00 . . . I saw a face light up over the loaf of bread I baked him . . .lives have been changed over a loaf or a fish. – Martha L Shaw ©2018 words and image

What does the word “share” bring to your mind? Perhaps it’s a thought of the kids fighting over a toy and “I wish they’d share.” How do we teach them? Perhaps, it’s a book you just read that “I can’t wait to give to Sue.” Could be the last cookie in the jar . . . broken in half, it becomes a treat for two.
Sharing is a tough concept in our world today. We seem to have raised generations of people who are driven to acquire, to have it all. We have so much more than previous generations and yet we aren’t satisfied. We lack joy. What is the answer? I think this quote sums it up well. Share something precious today! God did. He gve us His only Son. Look for Him in the eyes of all whom you meet today . . . and smile!
There is no delight in owning anything unshared.
