“Therefore show to them, and before the churches, the proof of your love and of our boasting on your behalf.” (2 Corinthians 8:24)
The world says ‘get, get, get’ and you will find great contentment. It’s also been said that we live in a ‘dog eat dog world’ where we need to look out for number one. I know people that have a lot but if they don’t share with others, they can be selfish and be really miserable. The reality is that selfishness leads to misery. The Bible and God want to teach us how not to be selfish. As you are blessed, part of experiencing all the blessings of the Lord is sharing them with others. When you receive something, you want to call someone or give part of it to them. Whether it’s sharing an incredible dish of food with them or blessing them with an extra ticket for a movie, we are blessed when we are generous. The moment you give to someone there is an immediate blessing in that – you can sense it, and you can feel it. God created a heart in us to share ourselves and be a blessing – to live generously.
You can be happy with less if you are being a blessing to others. No matter how much you have, you will be miserable with a lot when you are not a blessing to others. Jesus spent a lot of time teaching on the subject of money, knowing if you got this right; it would lead to more and more blessings. Get this one wrong and no matter what else you do, you will be miserable. You can be saved but if you are selfish, you will be unhappy.
“Jesus said to her (the women at the well), “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, 1but kwhoever drinks of the water that I will give him l will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become min him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:13-14)
“This year develop an unquenchable thirst to be a blessing to others.”
Heavenly Father, Thank You for the blessings You have given me. Even this morning, I woke up with air in my lungs and my heart beating. Help me to have an attitude of gratitude for all that I have. Also, give me the strength and wisdom to live a generous life. Help me to be more like You. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen
