The Blessing in Giving; Talking Heart2Heart

THE BLESSING IS IN THE GIVING...

THE BLESSING IS IN THE GIVING…

 

This season can be a difficult time for some for different reasons, especially during a challenging economy. Some dread this time of year, some are depressed, but for others it’s their favorite time of all. This all depends on how you approach the Christmas season. If you look at this time from the stand point of commercialism, then you may fall in the group of dreading the Christmas season. On the other hand, you may be doing all you can and still fall short on the necessities, so Christmas adds more stress. Christmas is the time of sharing, loving, and giving to others. Blessing others has a great return as the giver is abundantly blessed. Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down; shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”

It’s the perfect time to lend a helping hand to others in need. We are blessed to be a blessing to others. Acts 20:35 I have shown 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 blessing is in the giving of the gift.

When there is a need, you have the opportunity to make a difference. You step outside of yourself and step into the world of others. Being a blessing in the time of need is an attitude of the heart. It is a selfless, compassionate, generous act. Blessing others gives your heart a feeling of warmth filled with joy. When you give without expecting anything in return, the reward is the feeling it’s gives the receiver. The blessing in giving is allowing the receiver to experience the love and care from the heart of the giver. Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father in heaven.

There are great benefits of giving when it genuinely flows from the place God dwells. 2 Corinthians 9:7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. The one who purpose in their heart to bless will receive a blessed reward. So this season make the dreams come true for others, and God will bless you in a way you never imagined. What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you. Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Love is felt only when you give it away to others. Share God with others because God is Love. Are you about your father’s business? Are you blessing others as your father has taught you to do?
