This question was posed to a small group that I participated in last night. We never came to a consensus, but it generated a lively discussion.
Personally, it’s far harder for me to receive love—from both God and other people—than it is to give it. Giving has always come naturally to me; but when love is proffered to me, two thoughts spring to mind: there’s a catch and I don’t deserve this.
What about you? Is it easier for you to receive love or to give it?
