Which Kind of Giver?

It has been said that there are three kinds of givers—the flint, the sponge and the honeycomb. To get anything out of a flint you have to hammer it. And then you get only a few chips and sparks. In order to get water out of a sponge you must squeeze it. The more pressure you exert, the more you will get. But the honeycomb just overflows with its own sweetness. It doesn’t have to be hammered or squeezed. It just gives naturally and generously.

Which kind of giver are you?

“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”—2 Corinthians 9:8
