Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” Luke 6:38 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
I like Jehovahs investment plans. They are not like societies investment plans of gimme, gimme, gimme.
So many today foolishly believe that they are entitled and that we owe them because of their sexuality, colour, religion or sexual preference.
Then, there are the financial institutions that are quick to accept your money but good luck on getting it out, read service charges out of your ying yang which to me is legal thievery.
And, of course , there is the biggest bandits of all, the government. How many times do we pay for services and get substandard service in return, read we have a legal system not a justice system, look at our schools,. Then there is the fun of collecting unemployment insurance when you are laid off or compensation when you are hurt at work.
With Jehovah you get what you give.
No freeloaders allowed. If you give nothing, you receive nothing. If you give a little, you receive a little. If you give generously, you shall receive generously.
“God has given us two hands: one to receive with and the other to give with. We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for giving.” Billy Graham
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides Philippians 4:19 ) for Your abundant graces You bless me with through out the day. Please bless me with the opportunities to share them where You guide me to with as much joy to share them as it is to receive them. I exalt You and beseech You in the name of Your greatest blessing in my life, Jesus Christ. Amen.
May you be blessed with twice as many opportunities to share as you have to receive this day and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Two hands: one to get and the other to give. This reminded me of a chorus we used to sing around the fire at summer camp, 🎶”I want to be a channel for the River of God.”🎶. Blessings, brother. Great post.

I love being the channel on giving but find it hard to be the channel of accepting
