Instead of making a New Year’s resolution to exercise more, eat healthier, or reduce stress, I want to challenge you to receive directly from God.
We’re experts at giving, but we have a lot more to learn about how to receive.
In a culture where we work our way to the top, receiving a gift is disarming. It’s passive — something that is done to us rather than something we can control. We would much rather earn or take what we want than receive what others want for us.
