One Of The Benefits Of Acceptable Giving

Not all giving is acceptable before the Lord, our God. However, there are many things to enjoy from living a life of giving, only if you can correct the wrong mindset of giving.

Blessings

It is more blessed to give – Acts 20:34-35 “Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.

35) I have shewed you all things, how that so laboring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

The blessings of God are not restricted to money; it is just an aspect of God’s blessings. Blessings can be in the form of divine health, speed in all your endeavors, favor, etc. God blesses you according to what He thinks you need per time and not what you want. What you want may not be what you need. He is your Father, your Maker, and He knows you more than you do.

2 Corinthians 9:8 -And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

Proverbs 11:25 “The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall also be watered himself.”

Your gifts to others can speak for you, even in the lives of your children. When you live a life of giving, your generation will not beg for bread.

Proverbs 18:16 “A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.”

It took me years before I was able to understand the mystery behind giving. If you must see blessings you have never seen before, then lay it into your heart to be a blessing to others.

The Secret To Open Doors

The universe will only give more to those who are willing to pass it to others, and not to those who want to keep all for themselves. I was privileged to live with my maternal aunt for years. I watched how she give to those who are in need, even when she does not have enough for herself.

When we lost our parents, then she just graduated from university. She brought us to live with her. My other uncles and aunties didn’t want to be responsible for our upkeep. They gave one excuse after the other. We did not complain, so long as we have our aunty by our side. While taking care of three girls, she was still giving alms to the needy around her.

I noticed her life was quite different from her siblings, and her friends. The more she help people, the more favored she became. That was when it dawned on me that givers never lack, and our Lord Jesus Christ was right when He said, it is more blessed to give than to receive. Those of her friends and siblings who kept receiving from her never gotten more than her financially.

The Giver and the Receiver

Here is one financial secret that will turn your life around; if you want to be wealthy, then practice acceptable giving. This secret is not restricted to the Christians-it is one of the laws of wealth. That is why you see many people who do not believe in Jesus Christ, yet are soaring high in business. When you study their lives, you will find out that they give to different charity organizations; they help as many as they can.

In wealth, there are two types of persons; the giver, and the receiver. The giver will ALWAYS be higher than the receiver. This is the law; the receiver will not always be satisfied.

Fortunately for us, you can switch from being the receiver to the giver. Do you want to know how? Start giving from the level you are at now; purpose in your heart to be a blessing to someone. It may not be in monetary value. It could be sharing your knowledge with someone in need of it.

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

The Universe Dislikes Wasters And Hoarders

During my early days of working, I was doing well. Money was coming, but I did not imply wisdom in spending them. You see, money comes to those who are willing to make GOOD use of it. They leave the hands of wasters and do not multiply in the hands of hoarders.

Back to my story, I had a boyfriend then, who I never knew came because of the little inflow of cash I was earning from my work. Whenever I received my paycheck, he would come with a sob story, and I will be obliged to share some of my earnings with him. This continued for almost two years until the source of my income got blocked. I realized that I have not been saving, and the investments my boyfriend talked me into investing, crashed. I was left with nothing. This is how money works; it does not stay with people, who do not put them into good use.

When my boyfriend noticed there was no more money to get from me, we broke up. To be fair, he waited for three months before we broke up.

I had to start all over again; I started reading books on finances and praying to God for another opportunity to make it right.

God is merciful; things started turning up for me; I got a job that was fetching me enough to take care of myself. This time, I was more accountable with every dime I’d spend. I learned a lot from my experience with my ex-boyfriend. Before investing in any business, I ensure I do my research.

With the little I was earning, I decided to be a giver. Although I may not have enough for myself, I do know some people need what I do not need anymore. So, I gave things out, instead of letting them rot. I also purposed in my heart to stop asking my aunt for everything, and take some responsibilities myself.

It worked and is working. I may not be where I would love to be, but I am no longer where I used to be. The thought alone is enough for me to be grateful,which leads us to the next secret.

Be Grateful

Some people are not growing as they should, not because they are not hard working, but because they are not thankful of what they already have. Living a lifestyle of gratitude makes you joyful, and when you are joyful, you will attract positive things to your life. No matter how poor you think you are, there are people that are far worse than you.

ENCOURAGE YOURSELF: So be grateful for what you have now; it is one of the keys to move to the next level. Sincerely Joy
