We must remember what the Lord Jesus said, ‘We are more happy when we give than when we receive.’ ” Acts 20:35 The Holy Bible The New Life Version
Speaking personally, I feel uncomfortable when folks give me things.
On the flip side, I love to give to those who are needy and worthy. I know it gives glory to Christ and brings great joy to the receivers and sometimes brings them into Jehovahs Holy family.
Then, there is the ripple effect.
I have found it is one in ten. One man or woman out of ten that is helped it effects them to the point where they now have a giving heart as well. It is small for sure but over a lifetime those small ripples add up to tsunamis waves of giving.
The difference is that earths tsunamis bring destruction, tsunamis of love bring great love, joy and relief.
“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” — Scott Adams
Now, I have said it numerous times before and it will be said again.
Giving to those who need is different from those who are leeches.
Giving to those in need is giving to someone who through no fault of their own is experiencing difficulties. These folks appreciate the help while trying to help themselves.
The leeches are the lazy, ungrateful ones that demand more, more, more while giving nothing in return.
Give, but give wisely. Joseph a son of Jehovah
This brings us to another important aspect of giving.
We are not to randomly give (although there is nothing wrong with that, like helping a handicapped man or woman with their groceries to their vehicle or giving up your seat on the bus) our fiances or time.
We are to take it to Jehovah in prayer. He will send the Holy Spirit to guide us where the resources will be used effectively.
If you want the Masters help you must be willing to obey His direction in your life. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Using this method has brought me to places I would never have gone and done things I would never have done. But the results were incredible beyond my imagination.
Doing these things adds jewels to your crown which Christ will place upon your head when you are in Heavens home.
Another pay off is when you are in desperate time Jehovah gives pay back seven times more than you gave.
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Ha Melech Psalms 98:6 The LORD the King) for blessing me with the most incredible adventure in life that was beyond the wildest imagination. Thank you that we have accomplished so much in this life You have blessed me with. In You fantastic name I praise You. Amen The gift of love, the gift of joy, the gift of peace, these are the greatest gifts that can be given. They are given in abundance to all those in Christs family by our Heavenly loving Father.
May you be blessed with plentiful opportunities to share these with those around you today. Joseph a son of Jehovah
