"For God SO loved the world that He Gave.... #John3/16"
The epitome of all great endeavours has its root in the art and act of giving. (Tweetable?DoIt). God shows us his generosity by giving his only begotten son. God is so much a giver to the point of shedding the blood of his own son. Anyone who gives is emulating God in his expression of love towards man. Until you get to the point where your giving moves you, it will never move God. (Tweetable?DoIt). The spirit and the attitude of giving is important for anyone who desires more.
More doesn't come a person's way unless more has been given out. You cannot be a giver if you aren't a lover! (Tweetable?DoIt). It takes the spirit of sacrifice for one to let go of something that is theirs to another. Sadly, until you learn how to give, you are not permitted to ask. Those who have answers with regards to A(ask) S(seek) (Knock) are people who are givers. Giving is the stairway to you living a full life. As you learn to water others you will also be watered. Understand this, whenever giving is in motion, the law of reciprocity is also kick started. (Tweetable?DoIt).
Who has given to God and hasn't been recompensed or what is it that we have that we didn't receive? These are fundamental questions I pose to the one who thinks they got everything they have by dint of their hard work. No and no! Everything we have came out of the generosity of God. In Acts 20:35, the only words of Jesus not recorded in the synoptic gospel is that "it's more blessed to give than to receive". Meaning, there is a higher blessing reserved for those who are constantly giving. (Tweetable?DoIt)
Your giving takes nothing from you but your giving takes everything from God. When you have a clinched fist, life will mete out to you nothing. (Tweetable?DoIt). A closed hand is inadvertently a closed destiny. Even nothing produces something called nothing! Whatever you give out comes back as a good measure,pressed down and shaken together which is poured into your bosom by men. I believe your greatest reward is in the art and act of giving.(Tweetable?DoIt). Certain doors to great places won't open unless giving is at the fore.
Giving is living!(Tweetable?DoIt).
