How often is the irritation we feel towards others a result of us having unspoken expectations? Scripture says to freely give just as we freely receive. Both of those are tough. Is it okay to get agitated when we don’t get what we think we deserve? Or even more so is it all right for us to give but then be disturbed when the gift wasn’t appreciated to the degree we believe is appropriate? The closer our relationship with God the more we come to understand that everything belongs to Him and when we no longer assume ownership we can let go of expectations and freely give what we have so wonderfully received.
