This season of giving should bring out something in all of us. GRACE!- Published on: Dec 3, 2018 @ 14:05
This season of giving should bring out something new in each of us.
Leaders are influencers. Part of our role is to demonstrate and model the right way of both giving and receiving.
If you give and feel slighted because you did not get the “THANK YOU!” you believe you DESERVED, you are giving for the wrong reason. You should not “give” for the purpose of getting “thank you’s” but because your gift could change the life of someone else.
We should also receive with great grace. Gratitude and appreciation should be a joyful return for any gift of any size from anyone. To be grateful for only the best gifts and only from the most important people is immature and completely misses the point. It also slights anyone who gives from a pure motive and humble resources.
In short. GIVE not for recognition but for kindness. Receive with extravagant gratitude any gift. Model graciousness on both sides. That’s what great leaders do.
