To live a giving life is the most ideal life there is. Sometimes, it is too easy to get caught up in the circumstances where we realize somebody has a need that we do not believe we can meet, even if they have specifically requested assistance. Just because one may not be able to help them monetarily does not mean one can not help. Individuals generally have something to give.
There was a young man who concluded he planned to go see Jesus, so in the morning he stuffed his sack lunch of five grain portions and two fish, figuring it would deal with his appetite as the day progressed (John 6). In any case, later as he remained in a horde of thousands watching Jesus, one of Jesus’ devotees moved toward him and said, “Child, I see you brought a lunch, and Jesus is requesting it. We need to take care of this load of individuals.” I’m certain the kid thought, “Would you say you are joking? This is barely enough for me.” Nevertheless, he set what he had in the possession of Jesus and that tad of food was duplicated and took care of the colossal group.
One might not have precisely the thing somebody is asking you for. However does one have a hand they can loan? Would one be able to give a little assistance-maybe share a lunch? Does one have an urge to put somebody on their feet? Perhaps it’s simply time. Here and there, time is more important than cash. Maybe a sister simply needs an empowering word. Does she require her sibling to simply plunk down for fifteen minutes and lend a listening ear? Possibly she simply needs to hear, “Indeed, you can do it.”
We are never flat broke on the grounds that we serve the Creator of the world. We need to have the plentiful mindset of a luxurious provider since when we put what we have in the possession of Jesus, regardless of how extraordinary or little, it has an effect on individuals’ lives. It may very well be holding the entryway open for an outsider and making proper acquaintances. It very well may be giving a striking supplication for them for the sake of Jesus. Just let one’s individual light sparkle, and marvels will appear. Soon, connections will be repaired and new entryways open.
Be a luxurious supplier. Have the attitude that says, “I might not have precisely what you need today. However, I have ideas. I have some assistance. I have an empowering word. I have something I can accomplish for you.” Then watch God take a little and feed a huge number.
