It is more blessed to give than to receive. (Acts 20:35)
"We can experience feelings commonly associated with receiving love when we develop of taste for giving love sacrificially. In fact, if we set out with a goal of receiving love feelings, we usually end up dissatisfied. Only when we look away from our own emotional needs (trusting God to meet them) and move out to meet others' needs will our own needs be fully met."
Working on this lately.
