For some reason, I keep hearing the above title in my spirit. I know Janet Jackson sings a song with that title, but I am not that familiar with the song. This evening I heard a message on television and the minister was talking about one-sided giving in a relationship. Not just love relationships but any relationship.
He was saying even the most giving person will get tired, if they don’t see any reciprocation from their giving, which is true. After a while you get tired and lose the desire to be in the relationship if the person never gives anything in return.
So if you find someone putting a lot of requirements on you in a friendship, or love relationship, and they do absolutely nothing in return, maybe you should ask that person, “what have you done for me lately”? 🙂 After all, even God gives back to us when we give.
New International Version (NIV)
38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
