We Must Do It for the Right Reason.

loving to each other

 Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over [with no space left for more]. For with the standard of measurement you use [when you do good to others], it will be measured to you in return.” Luke 6:38 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Many folks read this and use it to try to manipulate Jehovah. They foolishly believe if they give a dollar to a cause of their choosing they can demand Jehovah give them back a thousand.

First off you must pray for direction in where to give wisely and that wisdom come from Jehovah.

So say you give to a street bum that is going to use the money to buy drugs or booze. What a waste of money. The same is to be said for theses scammers that give heart jerking scenes on TV like giving to help others in poor countries when most of the money will go to a CEO who makes millions off of suckers.

On the other hand say the Holy Spirit guides you to a place where you meet someone who needs support to meet their daily needs. That is a wise use of money. And, yes that has happened to me on more than one occasion.

Secondly, we must desire to give as an act of love for others rather than love for self.

So instead of giving a little expecting Jehovah to give you a lot so you can go on a cruise it not of the right reason and will be rejected by Jehovah. Rather, when seeing an opportunity presented by The Holy Spirit to give to someone who needs help and deserves it- is appreciative of it and will use it wisely, we give with a desire to help rather that expect a reward from Jehovah.

Finally, when we give it will come natural to give praise to the Lord for the opportunity He gave you to do good.

From my experience, the Lords blessing will come upon you in an unexpected way, in an unexpected time so there is no doubt it is a gift from Him. This causes us to love Him and praise Him all the more.

We must give, but, we must do it for the right reason. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Deah (God of knowledge) for blessing me with answering my requests (prayers) for Your wisdom in where to joyfully donate to causes in which You find worthy so as to invest the finances wisely. I praise You in the name of He who invested His blood for us to have a eternal home in Heaven Jesus Christ. Amen

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love fill your heart today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
