Today’s gospel tells us that Christ, “does not ration his gift of the Spirit.” Just as he was not selfish in giving totally of himself on the Cross, he also is not selfish in sharing with us the gift of the Spirit.

This raises two  types of questions for us.

First, how am I open to receiving that gift of the Spirit? Or do I reject God’s desire to share this gift with me? Is it because I’m struggling with sin and need to go to confession? Or just a need to grow in trust of the Lord?

Secondly, what am I doing to share that gift with others? Am I afraid to share this great of love I have received with others? Am I only willing to give out a little bit at a time? What’s holding me back? Selfishness? Pride? Fear?
