From my friend Steve Kinney:

“It is indeed better to give than receive, but before we can give, we have to receive.”

Easy to forget that absent receipt we got nothin’.  We arrive on and depart this mortal coil empty handed, which strongly suggests that the focus should be on what we receive, not what we have; not on what we got, but how we got it, from whom.  Of course, what can be the uncomfortable aspect of that line of thinking is that (we get circular here) it is easy to forget that absent receipt, we got nothin’.  In short: “In everything give thanks.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18
