Have you ever wonder why there is a Sea that is called “The Dead Sea”? It is located between Israel and Jordan and it is famous for being the

The same is true for people. When we receive gifts of talents, education, financial fortune, or other resources, we might think sharing those gifts with others leaves less for us. But when you DON’T GIVE OF YOURSELF to others, a part of you dies.
