The Law of Gift
Jesus says: "The one who saves his life will loose it.
The one who risks his life for my sake will find it."
Your being increases only in the measure that you give it away.
Your faith will grow only in the measure that you give it away.
God exists in gift form.
Divine life is in gift form.
If you want God in you conform to his way of being;
learn to give to have God.
As you receive it as a gift you give it away and it will increase in you.
If you seize it for yourself its' flow will cease.
If you want to have divine life give it away.
Find a path for the propagation of your faith.
Find some way to share it, give it away.
Paraphrased from Fr Barron's homily The Great Spiritual Law
