GIVING, RECEIVING, HELPING AND SAYING THANK YOU.

Ever heard this “givers never lack”? Well this gave me something to really
think of simply because I asked myself if it meant people who wanna give but
didn’t have to give will lack. Biblically it says that it is more blessed to
give than to receive. This is not talking to people who don’t genuinely have to
give, because believe you me God does understand and just because you don’t
have today doesn’t mean it’s gonna stay that way forever!

Even the bible says that it is more blessed to give than to receive,
additionally I will say that if the lord has blessed you with riches you should
give and what your left hand does, do not let your right hand know. Do not give
and tell the whole world you have given. Sow in the life of people so that God will
look down on you and bless you more. Ever wondered the secret of
philanthropist, the very rich? The secret is simply giving, because the hand
that gives always stays on top!
Even Ruth in the bible sacrificed her time to her mother-in-law, she gave
her loyalty to Naomi (her late husband's mother) & was rewarded with a blissful
marriage to Boaz. Her eternal reward was being in the lineage of Jesus Christ.
Everyone has something to give. No one without exception is without something
to give, because giving is not just about money, it includes; your time, your
space, your physical strength, your prayers, your comfort or counsel, your
smile, your service, the list goes on & on.  “Always" find ways to give something to
others in whatever form you have. The lad who gave Jesus his lunch (5 loaves
& 2 fishes), peter gave Jesus his boat to preach wit, Mother Theresa gave
her time & service, Mandela gave his passion & knowledge, etc...  “It can be affirmatively
said that the greatest form of giving is thanksgiving”
 
 Helping is simply giving a hand
to someone in need. This life is really very funny because people mostly
remember you for the good you did. So whenever you find yourself in a position
to help, do not hesitate to help. Simply because one day you’ll need the help
of someone, it might not be in form of cash but kind. Just imagine you had been
in the position to help that person but you never did, what will become of you?
Sow in the life of people because what you sow, you shall one day reap. You
really might not reap directly, might even be your children’s children! That
unknown person might just be an angel passing by. Now you don’t wanna miss that
blessing do you?
Thank you says you
appreciate what you’re given, so
whenever you receive or get help from someone never hesitate to say
thank you! It goes a long way.
the hand giving is always on top.
giving engenders receiving.
next time i go to the goldsmith,i am gonna have this done to my pendant...lol.

it's really good to know we have people thinking like this. I've always thought bout it. It's not when one acquires all the wealth in the world that he or she is fulfilled. I think it the amount of lives we touch positively that counts and makes for our fulfillment. Nice work Favour. Your doing a wonderful thing here.
Keep it up.
