"Faye's daily words of encouragement"# 5 Todays word is: Giving
2 Corinthians chapter 9 verse 6 thru 9: But this I say,he which soweth sparingly shall reap sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully, shall reap boountifully.
Every man accordingly as he purposeth in his heart , so let him give not grudingly, or of necessity: for God love a cheerful giver.
As it is written, he hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor his righteousness remaineth for ever.
The bible tells us that God loves a cheerrful giver, and that's someone that gives from the heart and a hand from someone else. I'm sure most of us have had some hard times in our lives; and we all have had somone to give us some kind of help,when we were in dire need.
Giving is the Godly thing to do, if we see our brothers and sisters in Christ struggling and in need of a hand up, then you should extend yours. I'm a person that doesn't mind giving , if I have t to give; because someone once gave to me when I was in need. Giving of anythings to other ,whether it monetary or other services; giving should make a person feel joyful and uplifted , because you were able to help.
I always feel joyful, if I can give to someone more needy than myself. Today, I ask you to search your heart, and find the love of God within you; and give to those that are less fortunate than we. I try to help anyone in need of assistance, because we never know when we will need the same favor returned.
