No one has ever become poor from giving, you believe that, Right? But what if the homeless gave to you, would you take their money?
WHY DO WE GIVE?
In today’s society, its socially acceptable for anyone to give especially to the poor. Is it acceptable because its one individual helping another or because one individual is better than another, so its okay to help?
Watching this video gave me an insight about giving that l want to share with you.
What is the condition of our hearts when you give?
No matter what you give or how much you give, if you are not humble enough in your heart to realize that you are not better than the other person, then you are standing in the way of the full reward of giving. Because as much as giving is about the other party, it purely begins with you so it’s about you.
Why is it about me?
Because giving opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great Proverbs 18:16
I believe that Giving does not show how rich we are in this world but how rich we are in our hearts, i think when we don’t give, we are saying we are poor in our hearts. Because giving starts from what we have inside rather than what we have on the outside.
It says in the bible that when you give cheerfully what you have decided in your heart that God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:8
In Luke 6:8 it says Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
HOW HUMBLE ARE YOU IN YOUR HEART TO ALLOW GOD TO BLESS YOU THROUGH A HOMELESS PERSON?
Because even a homeless person, is rich in their heart.
