Legend has it that Robin Hood robbed from the rich to give to the poor. At initial glance, we often tend to view that story in terms of an exchange of money, and many of us say; “I would love to make a difference to those in need, but I can barely make ends meet myself.”
The story is, in fact, a wonderful metaphor. For we are all rich in something, and what is valued most about you is rarely your finances. Maybe you are rich in creativity, or maybe it is compassion. Perhaps you are rich in faith, and know beyond doubt that no matter how bad things may be today, this too shall pass. Perhaps it is the ability to make someone else smile, or find the silver-lining in any situation. You may criticize yourself for being quiet, while others delight at what a good listener you are. We take these things for granted, as they tend to be part of our personality. Rarely do we think of them in terms of any real value.
And perhaps they aren’t of much value to us personally. They aren’t meant to be. These are divine gifts that are meant to be given away, for there are others so very hungry for them, as they lack them in their own lives. These are your divine gifts to give; “divine” for they bring hope. Hope is the real message behind Robin Hood, and you can be a modern-day Robin Hood. The only cost is caring.
