“The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season. You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing” (Psalm 145:15–16). Have you ever watched the hands of small children as they play with each other? Perhaps one has a toy, and the other does not. If the child with the toy doesn’t want to share, he will hold on to the toy so hard that his little hand will turn white with the effort. But, sometimes, a child will want to share. She will reach out her little arm as far as it will go and offer the toy to the other child. And how does she hold the toy in the balance of her tiny reach? She holds it out with an open hand. It is beautiful.
