We can give to bribe, to insult or deceive…

“We can give to bribe, to insult or deceive, to pump ourselves up and deflate others, to hide abuse, or for many other similar ignoble reasons. And when we do, we don’t give as we should. Giving has turned into its very opposite, into injury. Under the pretense of wanting to delight, it manipulates under the pretense of helping it wounds. Under the pretense of generosity it shamelessly takes.” ~ Miroslav Volf
