When we concentrate and work hard on a donor case, we tend to think of how it will greatly benefit the recipient. Have you ever considered how donation might benefit the family of the recipient? It provides more time together—both in quantity and quality. It permits the togetherness in the celebration of major events—births, weddings, anniversaries, and holidays. A wife may feel more secure in her future, knowing that she has a lesser chance of becoming a widow in the near future. The children and possibly grandchildren may now grow closer in relationships and have many more laughs with their parent or grandparent for a longer period of time. Therefore, may we not think of donation as a gift but as the gift that keeps on giving.
Shall we pray:
God, You are the Giver of all our needs, so I ask that You continue giving us wisdom in how to continue offering the gift that keeps on giving.
We ask this in Your name, Amen.
