Some fight so hard to get what they want whilst some wonder how all their blessings just fall on their lap. Some struggle to reach their dreams whilst some just enjoy the fruits of their labour. Some tried to keep their head above the water whilst some are walking on water.
But whether you are on the right or left side of receiving, or even at the middle, at the end of the day, history belongs to those who have given and not who have only taken. It’s not how big the amount you have spent but how big your heart you have poured out. The world changers are those who gave… and gave… and gave… Receiving inspires your own heart but giving transforms not just your heart, but others as well.
What inspires you to take? More likely it’s yourself. But what drives you to give? I bet this question shifts your focus – it directs you to a deeper meaning of life. Only in giving we will understand the true value of our riches, our blessings. I believe, even the richest persons in the world will never have that greatest and truest form of treasure without a heart who genuinely knows how to bless others. Like John Maxwell said, “People don’t care how much you know unless they know how much you care.” It’s also like saying, “People really don’t care how rich you are or how blessed you are unless they know how big your heart is for others or how much you just enjoy making someone happy.”
Some actually don’t realize that the more they are willing to let go of their blessings, the more the BLESSER will fill their barn. Who can outdo the generosity of our HEAVENLY FATHER? Naah, our generosity has definitely limitations but HE is absolutely unlimited!
“Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” Luke 6:38, NLT
But at the end of the day, after all these laughters, after all the sharing of joy to others, the one who truly knows the ULTIMATE GIVER will just naturally overflow…
