Take 2

Givers and Takers of the world


Do you characterize yourself as a “giver” or “taker” in this world? Matthew 5:40 uses those precise words. And if anyone wants to sue you and take your coat, give your cloak as well. When human beings interact with one another, there is an element of give and take as part of the rhythm of the relationship. As Christians, are we always called to give? Are there certain circumstances when taking is permissible? In a world where selfishness is on the rise, this topic is worthy for discussion. Share with us on Tuesday about your giving and taking tendencies. Maybe you were a taker and now you have grown into being a generous giver. Your spiritual journey may help someone else in a deep and profound way. So call in at 1-800-585-9396.

  1. Listening to a rebroadcast on your program on parish ministry. One caller commented that in some parishes the same persons are doing so many of the roles. He said they should let other parishioners get involved. Just wanted to comment that sometimes it is the same people because requests are made verbally and in the bulletin for more volunteers and no one volunteers. So then someone who is already volunteering takes on another role so the ministry can be filled. My take is too many times people sit back and say ‘let George do it”.


  2. Thanks, Trish. There are certainly a lot of reasons why some parishes have too few people getting involved. We hope that our show helped a few more of them ask themselves if they should be helping out in the parish. God bless you.
