Give and Not Receive

It seems to be the mission of some in this world to give and not receive. They are to shine in the darkness, burning up their own lives as the lamp’s oil burns, to be light to other souls… We are apt to pity such persons; but couldn’t it be that they are nearer the heavenly ideal of doing God’s will than are some of those who sit in the sunshine of love, receiving, ministered unto, but not giving or serving? – J.R. Miller
