It is human nature to want to hold on to everything we own and have acquired. We hold on to things even when we don’t need or use them.
Giving to an average human is like losing. But this is not true. Giving can be likened to planting or investing. You have to let go of the seed or money before it can yield fruit/interest.
Clutter experts advise; “If you haven’t used it in two years, give it away” That is the last thing a lot of us wants to hear.
We hold on to that old appliance or clothing hoping it would be of use one day. And most times, we never use them.
Ever wondered why multi-millionaires and billionaires always find one charity project or the other to fund? One reason is, they have discovered the secret of the Principle of Giving.This principle works irrespective of age, race, sex or religion.
It’s simple; when you give, you will be given.
You don’t have to be a millionaire to give.
Start where you are and you would soon start to see a difference in your life. Giving doesn’t have to be monetary.
You can give emotional support, hope, a listening ear, comfort. You can even share your expertise and knowledge with those who can’t afford the kind of education you have.
There will always be someone who needs what you have abandoned or what you have.
If it’s not meeting a need, turn it into a seed---Joel Osteen.
If you help the poor, you are lending to the lord. And he will repay you….Proverbs 19:17(NLT)
You may not end the receiver’s suffering but you can be a trigger of hope; the initiator of the healing process they need.
Remember, when you give don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure for God loves a cheerful giver- 1 Corin 9:7
