We breathe to live and we live to give. Giving is not a religious doctrine, it’s a basic spiritual principle and no man is above the law of giving. This selfless act of compassion is the highest virtue of godliness that set great leaders and prosperous fellows apart in the world of selfishness. Wherever giving is expressed God is glorified. By giving unconditionally we shine our light in the world of darkness and unlocked the floodgate of abundance. Jesus said” let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father which is in heaven –Matthew 5:16“. Our duty as Christians is to bring heaven to earth by the act of giving and as such whenever you help someone in need and solve a problem that affects the wellbeing of humanity, you are expressing love in the highest order.
Giving is one way to lay hold on greatness and affirm the victorious life in Christ; the boundary that separate the creative rich elite and the self-imposed poverty men. The desire to always get without the ability to give creates tension and cause failure and scarcity. Giving helps you experience the love of God. Just as you have electricity in your house, you can’t see it and you can’t touch it; but by switching on the light you experience it; when you hear the sound of music you recognize the presence of power; even so through the act of giving you become a witness of the reality of the blessings of God which leads to increase of joy and riches because “joy is the power that enables your faith to produce results (Isaiah 12:3) “. The essence of breathing is life and the truth about giving is upliftment. How often do you uplift yourself? In the physical world, we breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbondioxide. In life we give out happiness and joy flows into our lives by the power of love. Joy is equal to oxygen and happiness is equal to carbondioxide. By giving we receive a greater volume of joy and divine empowerment. For this reason, we are told” give and it shall be given unto you……Luke 6:38 “.
Receiving is like breathing in oxygen, by giving we breath out carbondioxide. When someone is unable to breathe out carbondioxide what happens? This process is the same with the system of blood circulation in the human body. Every organ, vein and cell receives blood from the heart and by the law of life it forwards it unto others and enables the body to be in good health. The blood must return to the heart in order to keep life going. When any of the organs, veins and cells fails to function in this order the result is sickness or death. Giving is about you, i mean giving is about you! You are like one of those organs and veins in the body. It’s not about the receiver and it’s important also to have the wisdom to know where and when to give. You don’t need anybody to convince you to be a giver in life. The choice is yours. A gift is what you decide to offer someone freely without conditions, it’s an expression of kindness towards people. It could be a word of encouragement, a financial donation to good causes and service to community etc. Whenever you give compassionately, you are making a statement” I HAVE”, and Jesus said” to him that have more shall be given unto him, and he shall have an abundance – Matthew 13:12“, and when you are afraid to give, you are making a statement as well” I DON’T HAVE” and he also said” from him that have not shall be taken away, even the little one he has”.
For this reason, you shouldn’t wait for an opportunity to give, create one for yourself. Be concerned about the problems of this world and the needs of others and you will have so many ways to unleash your compassion and your greatness. With this understanding, you should be wise always to appreciate people when you’re blessed by their actions, don’t just be waiting for help, don’t take people for granted when they offer you a gift or service in any form, also be a helper to someone in the best way you can, a cup of water given to a tasty soul is an act of kindness, by so doing you are giving God the glory. Never you give because you want, but because you have. You are from above, the less is blessed of the better. You can’t give unless you have, just like you can’t breathe out carbondioxide unless you have access to oxygen. By giving generously you are activating the flow of infinite blessings and by so doing you are proclaiming your success in life and when men are cast down, you are lifted up, in time of scarcity, you become like a tree planted by the rivers of water! May the grace to walk in the path of abundance be enriched in you in Jesus name.
Help is healing, by being a healer in the world of pain we energize our peace and live in good health.
