You can look up companies that give and see that they are among the most successful. It is true on a personal level as well.
Money comes and goes. It's people you invest in for a good harvest. I heard a song the other day and the chorus went something like this: "I ain't seen a hearse with a trailer."
Can I get an amen?! This past week Ed and I have had some potential set backs. We stopped answering the phone because bad new kept coming in. BUT, that said, I am not in the least worried.
God has always made a way for us and supplied our needs. You see, we have been givers. Giving of ourselves, our home, our money and love to others. I have spent my life taking care of others on one level or another.
It is sad that the leaders in this world, by and large are greed based, which is really fear based. Holding onto, grasping, not quick to give.
You don't need to be rich to give someone a hug, a smile, a sandwich. For whatever measure you use is relative. Jesus calls out the woman in the Synagogue who gave the last penny she had, saying. it is true, she gave more than all the gold of the Pharasies.
Something to think about.
