The Bible says that it’s “better to give than to receive.” That’s right. It says, “better.” In no way does it imply that it’s “bad” to receive. In fact, if there were no one to receive acts of kindness, then there would be no acts of kindness. So, by receiving the generosity of others, we are actually enabling them to be charitable and have God bestow graces upon them. But for many of us, receiving the kindness of others is very difficult. We don’t believe that we deserve to be served by others, to have them do good things for us. Or, sometimes we just don’t believe that we need the help of others.
