It’s More Blessed To Give Than Receive?!

I read this quote the other day and it's been stuck in my head. “The more your world is about you, the more angry and tired you’ll be. The more it’s not about you, the more free you’ll be.” - Matt Chandler My first thought was that if this is true, why don't I live …
