The Real Meaning of ‘The more you give, the more you receive’

I was coming down from Mount Dandenong where I often go to reflect. I get a lot of inspirations from looking at God’s creation: the trees, the leaves on the ground, the birds singing or simply chirping, the raindrops, the wind, the sea, the clouds in the sky and all his amazing living things. You…
