The homily yesterday was about giving and receiving.
In the holy land, there are two seas. The Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee. Both are fed by River Jordan. Buy why is it that the Dead Sea is a concentrated salt water lake which no living organisms can survive but the Sea of Galilee is of Fresh water, a home to many organisms?
The reason is because the Sea of Galilee not only recieves from River Jordan but also gives out the water. There is an inlet and an outlet. For the dead sea, It only receives, but never gives.
So is it better to receive, or to receive and also give ?
