Three Types of People

I have identified three types of people.  Most people fall into one of the following categories concerning their generosity: 

  1. Takers 
  2. Keepers 
  3. Givers 

I have also seen the effects of these particular lifestyles on the results people get in all areas of life.  “The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others – ignoring God – harvests a crop of weeds.  All he’ll have to show for his life is weeds!  But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life.”xl 

Some Suggestions About Boundaries

The next suggestion I have is to learn to set clear boundaries with people.  All too often in our relationships, or even in society, we generally fail to set boundaries and because of this we develop resentments.  This can cause us to treat others badly; not just the one who is asking us to do more than we want or can, but everyone in general. 

Prepare  Now

In the event of a disaster, you may be on your own for a period of time. I have experienced this more than a few times

in the past several years. There was one time where the streets in my neighborhood were impassable for almost a week. There was no electricity, phone or internet service. The neighborhood was on our own. I’m happy to say that we survived!
