"You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel." Matthew 23:24b. Wow, what a visual! For some reason, reading this passage made me consider the places and spaces in my life where I might be joystipated in my giving--be it financially, emotionally, with my time, talents, or otherwise. I don't want to give minimally while reaping bountifully. And I want to make sure my giving is joyful, not grudging; out of gratitude rather than obligation. Whether at home, church, in my community, with loved ones, etc., I want my giving to be at the optimum level.
