Life Is About How Much We Share

While watching a trailer for some movie I heard the line, “Life is about how much you share.”  To me that statement was profound. 

I have a few friends that don’t share much of their inner feelings and I wonder do they know what their missing? If we withhold then friends withhold and we’ll miss those magical moments of true friendship. 

If I don’t share abundant love with my daughter she won’t know that feeling and security of absolute love. If I fail, she will have a hard time giving and receiving love. 

If people of wealth aren’t charitable they'll never know the feeling of helping so many in such need.

If we don’t share our knowledge, support and love we will rarely get it in return. 

I’m going to assess how much I share because at the end of the day giving it all we’ve got is what counts.

How about you, ‘do you share’?

  2. Sharing is at the heart of what it means to be a follower of Jesus - sharing our heart, time, love, money, gifts, etc. And sharing it with your daughter will reap huge rewards of friendship and joy (I have 3 kids, 2 of them daughters, all grown now, and Cheryl and I enjoy a great relationship with all three). What a blessing. Great post.

  3. I think it is all about sharing my friend! We need to give of ourselves and by doing this our children will learn to give as well. I think there are many people who do not share and often take. I can only hope that through example we all can make a difference. have a great week my friend!

  4. I think sometimes it is hard to share b/c you open yourself to getting hurt by other people. I guess that means you need to pick good people to share your life with!

  5. I giggle because I'm most definitely a sharer, but when it comes to new relationships (or even old relationships where I've been hurt), I have a very strong wall that will, with time and trust, slowly comes down. If that makes any sense. Glad you posted about all the parts of sharing!

  6. I AGREE IT'S ALL ABOUT SHARING...SOMETIMES I THINK SOME SHARE A LITTLE TOO MUCH! I KNOW I HAVE TIMES WHERE I COULD TALK UNTIL MY FACE FALLS OFF!!! BUT I THINK SHARING WHO WE TRULY ARE IS WHAT MAKES OUR GIFT SO SPECIAL, WE ARE SHARING OUR PASSION AND WHAT WE LOVE AND WE MUST VOICE THOSE FEELINGS TO THE ONES WE CARE FOR MOST!

    HOPE YOU'RE DOING GOOD!!1

  7. I tend to over-share as well. I'm guessing it is a prevalent trait among bloggers. As far as sharing as a way to give to others, I try, but can always do more.

  8. That is a profound statement. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I haven't blogged much lately so I appreciate you stopping by. I learned something recently that echoes what you shared...meet people where they're at...that's what I get to learn/do/improve. Always inspired to visit you.

  9. Whoa that's true....it kind of goes along those lines that you have to give in order to receive. If I want my friends to open up and really share with me then I have to do the same with them. This is true in a lot of areas of life....you get back what you put in.

  10. Such a true comment. I tried to avoid making New Year's resolutions this year, but so far, I have kept one--I've been carving out time here and there to call loved ones and old friends and to be more charitable to people in need. Last year all I did was stress about money. This year, I'm not necessarily in a better financial situation and yet, by giving money to people in need, I find I'm not stressing as much about my own finances. Sharing does make you feel good--whether it's sharing our experiences, our knowledge, our time, or our money. It definitely has boosted my spirit. What an awesome win-win for everyone!
