Jesus’ command to ‘love our neighbours as ourselves’ is intended to benefit both parties. One party feels cared for and loved while the other feels the impact of sharing that love. Generosity is theraputic, it’s contageous, it’s relationship building. Most of all, when expressed as a gift of love, it is closest to discovering the nature of God.
