“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. As it is written: “He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.” Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! 2 Corinthians 9:6-15
We so often are reminded of the attributes of our Almighty God. He is all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving and always present. He created, sustains and controls the universe(s). Everything we see, everything we don’t see is all within His control. He is the Great “I AM”. He is also all-giving! One of the most well-known verses of Scripture is John 3:16 “For God so gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life”
Are you a follower of Jesus Christ who gives without condition, with cheerfulness as we are extolled to do in the Word? Giving doesn’t always require a monetary situation. Giving is a heart condition! A heart that has received the “gift of God” and desires to serve the Lord.Give of your heart Give of your time Give of your substance Give of your love Give freely to all Give like our Savior or Give nothing at all.

I am thankful to say, in helping others, I have been so blessed. No matter how we see our life, there are so many we can help, in so many different ways.
Yes there are so many ways it would take me days to write them all down. Sometimes a smile is more than enough of a gift when given with joy to a wounded heart.
Thank you for sharing, and God bless you. Here is one of my latest posts: http://scottsholar.com/2012/04/29/power/
thanks you for sharing! Tried commenting to one of your posts, but for some weird reason it wouldn’t let. oh well.
As shown so wonderfully in the video, we (the givers) are always blessed in some way, shape, or form by the giving of ourselves and in every other aspect.
Thanks Cheryl for your comments. Yes, there are more ways than I can think of to “give” the Lord’s love to anyone and everyone!
Be blessed sweet sister
We cannot outgive God. When we give, in His name, in response to His love in us, He ALWAYS gives back to us, and He always uses a bigger shovel.
What an amazing God!
Yes our God is an Amazing God…and a Giver of His love to everyone. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts. 🙂
