Nibble of Bread : Proverbs 11:24

September 13, 2012

Be a giver

Proverbs 11:24

There is one who scatters, yet increases more; And there is one who withholds more than is right, But it leads to poverty.

If you believe that God created the universe and everything in it, you should also believe then that He created you and me. Which would make all of our talents, strengths, skills, weaknesses and flaws all gifts from God (Genesis ). So if God created everything around us, and also created everything we are to this day as men; a human argument may be, what is actually ours? Well, to be honest; nothing. Which is not a bad thing, I hope you don’t see this as one. Everything we have is a gift from God, whether it be the clothes on your back, or the kids you have fathered. Therefore if God has so richly blessed us with so much abundance (especially compared to other countries), why should we not act the same way as our creator. Whom, we are actually created in the same image of (Gen. 1:26). So if God is a giver of all things, we need to strive and work to be the same. God has blessed us all with our own special gifts, lets learn to pour those gifts into others. If you have time, give it. If you have money, give it. If you have love, give it. If you have peace, give it. When we turn our hearts to be givers in all that we have, whether in abundance or in shortage, God’s only desire is to replenish with abundance (Psalm 23:5).

As you freely have received, freely give my brothers.
