News Flash, Serving Others Reaps Gods Blessing in His Favor and Rewards
No Greater Joy
Helping others that are less fortunate or have a need is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. It sure is not from me, self or I that fills me with joy and peace .Nothing assures me more of getting out of self or self pity then reaching out to someone else. Many people make a choice to help others. We are not born of a giving nature We are born sinners.God paid the price for our sin and salvation.The parent or caregiver is the one that leads the way for the baby, child, adolescent. The first word out of a baby's mouth is da da. (Father in Heaven)/ I like that..The second word if not the first is mine, mine, mine. Loving and giving natures are taught to us. WE are taught by our peers how to be righteous or how not to be righteous. we are held accountable at a young age. Someone might be tender hearted but mind you we are not naturally given that nature. We are wonderfully made for purpose. Yes, No and Share are words we learn from our peers. We learn from our spiritual leaders. We learn from Jesus. We have a choice to give or not to give. He gave the ultimate gift His life so we could make heaven. We will be judged according to our works. No one is perfect but the big hearts will be rewarded in Heaven. Your heart is where your treasure is. Matthew 6:19-21( Not your treasure is where your heart is ) I have known many that believe in a God yet believe we are to be self sufficient. I believe we can look out that window and see where that has taken 'the world'. Christ is the Way, Truth and Life. He came to give us life and more abundantlyJohn 10:10 He tell's us to first give to the Kingdom of God then to the children,poor and widows. He promises us we will be blessed abundantly on earth and in eternity if we follow him.and giving. Bless-Be Blessed. Luke 6:38 The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy. If the parent or caregiver of the child is lost in the dark then how will that wear on the child ? Will they grow to be self serving? I would venture out to say yes, that is what they know. They will have a life time of opportunities to give back and give love. I had my times of self destruction.I was full of me. I had on blinders. I wanted what I wanted today, now. I had loving, parents they taught us about blessing others. I stepped off the track with alcohol and drugs. When I made it back to the light by the grace of God I took off my blinders. I was all about me. I am so eternally grateful I choose to bless others. It would be awesome to have hundred dolar bills to pass around. You would want to be on my block that day. I can share the Good news of salvation. I do not have to be a door mat. Inner peace is the most wonderful gift. Not Jewell's or cars or 401k. I can lend an ear, give a hug, give twenty dollars to the man on the corner, go help a woman in a nursing home. Name it? It needs help.
God gives and takes. He is all or nothing for me. If I am doing the work of the Lord and live in the light I give with no motives, no selfish means I too am blessed. I have known wonderful, big hearts. I have known self seeking hearts. Guess which side I practice each day?.Which side are you on.? God knows my heart. If I am going to hoard because of fear that is not of God. That is what the enemy wants you to believe hoard and hide. You have to stash, worry and save. When I love others if it can only be a smile or a hug I get blessed. When I give to the poor the joy is complete within me. I blow it. I do not like to but I am human. I ask God to help me do better next time. I am forgiven over and over. I know today the only true way is follow he light. Stay out of the dark.Give and it will be given to you, shaken, pressed down and running over. (scripture)
We take nothing but our souls when we pass to eternity. Stuff does not go, money stays.i am blessed. God promises and says put him to the test. He will repay on earth 30%,60% or 100%. If I release what is in my hand to his kingdom, it is a promise. I would much rather get what I have left blessed then all of what is in my hand if I do not give..The favor is mine. God is so cool. He wrote it. I did not. Thank God. If you are not of the giving side and fearful to loose up a few bucks try this. I dare you. Look for someone in line that has 3 or 4 items of mac and cheese or the likes. Hand them a ten or twenty or one hundred dollar bill. Give what you feel you have to stash or save, Give away and see how you feel. See how the blessing will be returned. God repays. He is a rich God. He owns it all anyway. You take nothing with you.but your soul. He knows your heart. Purchase a phone for a family that lost theirs because they lost a job..Make the bill each month. See what happens to you. I have done all of the above.i receive gifts from the Lord that are above my wildest dreams. Give the waiter an extra $50,see how you feel inside after blessing this person. Do not give because you have to, that does not count. Have a wonderful, bless
With Love and Thanksgiving.
