In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.

"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
