For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required... Luke 12:48
It is a known fact that the more we receive from God, the more we are to bless others. Never are we given anything that we are to selfishly keep all to ourselves. We are always surrounded with people who stand in need of something; whether great or small. However, as Christians we have been blessed greatly with natural and spiritual blessings from God to give unto others. Giving is a huge part of living a Godly life. You will not read anywhere in the bible where Jesus was selfish. He spent His entire life giving to us. In John 3:16, it states that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son. We have been receiving from God since the beginning ( See Genesis 1). Now it's our turn.
Giving is very rewarding. Not just because you will receive something from God, but because of the feeling you get from making someone else happy. The feeling of joy that comes from being there for someone during there time of need. If you aren't in the habit of giving, I suggest you do so. If you are a giver, keep up the good work. BE BLESSED!
GIVING IS THE KEY OF LIFE BY: HELEN STEINER RICE
Every day is a reason for giving
And giving is the key to living...
So let us give ourselves away
Not just today but every day.
And remember, a kind and thoughtful deed
Or a hand outstretched in a time of need
Is the rarest of gifts, for it is a part
Not of the purse but a loving heart...
And he who gives of himself will find
True joy of heart and peace of mind.
