How much of the giving power do you have? The wisdom of giving cannot be over-emphasized. How disposed you are to giving determines your level of prosperity. A giving person will always enjoy a prosperous life. This article gives the relationship between giving and a prosperous life.
There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty- Proverbs 11:24 (KJV)
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again - Luke 6:38 (KJV)
I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive - Acts 20:35 (KJV)
The world system says hold back as much as you can but God says give as much as you can if you want to prosper. This is most common in the area of finances. But I am happy to point out now that the world is learning to adopt God's own principles for a prosperous life.
All round prosperity can never be complete without giving. The more you give the more you receive. What you make to happen for another, God will make to happen for you. Certainly what you sow, you will reap.
What can you give? You may be saying now, that you don't have to give. But you do! You can give love, your time and energy, money, your knowledge and skill, hospitality, your possessions, etc. So, can you see what you can give now?
The power of giving never leaves the possessor empty. He is the first beneficiary. The benefits are enormous and encompass the spirit, soul and the body of the individual, which results to prosperous life. For example, you have joy when you share whatever you have with another. When you put a smile on someone's face, you inevitably do so also on your face.
It has been proven that if you are depressed and you go and help another depressed person, your spirit gets lifted too. Also, when you share a useful knowledge or skill, you tend to learn more. Furthermore, when you help anyone in need, God sends help to you when you are in need too.
It is more blessed to give than to receive. You don't wait to receive first before you give. No! You have to initiate it first. A farmer does not receive any harvest before he plants his seeds. One thing is certain; your harvest will be more than your seeds.
Consider our father, the God almighty, He gave His only son Jesus and He reaped and is still reaping multitude of saints. Also, mother Theresa gave love and reaped among other things joy, honour and fame. Again, Bill Gate gave his time and knowledge and reaped a lot, financial prosperity inclusive. The power of giving is amazing!
Furthermore, my mother offered our house to many people for different reasons and when we, her children, needed accommodations, people were eager to offer their houses to us. In addition, I derive joy and fulfilment sharing my knowledge by writing articles and publishing them. When someone is blessed by them, I get blessed too.
A prosperous life is impossible without the power of giving. You don't have to go far to give what you have. That person near you needs it. Receive the giving grace today.
