or, gratitude, as we usually call it. Only God gives freely. For the rest of us, there’s a give and take. Generosity spawns generosity. Gratitude engenders gratefulness, love begets love. The fact that this is a piece of universal human experience really asks an answer to the question posed by the Psalmist, “How shall I make a return to God, for all the good God has done for me?” To be fully human, I need to respond to the Source of Generosity, even though that One doesn’t need it or ask for it.
