I belong to the ministry of Giving and Receiving.
Paul said in Second Corinthians, “I want you to excel in the gracious ministry of giving.” He could have said, “I want you to excel in business, excel in sports, excel in medicine.” That’s all good. But he said, “What I want you to really be great at, what I want you to excel in is giving.”
I’ve made up my mind I’m going to live my life as a giver and not a taker. If you get around me, I better warn you, you’re going to get blessed. I’m going to study ways that I can be good to you. I’m going to encourage you. I’m going to buy your dinner. I’m going to be good to your children. I’m going to help make your dreams come to pass. See, when I come to the end of my life, I don’t want people to say, “Oh yeah, Stevie had that big business, didn’t he? He wrote some nice books.” No, I want them to say, “Stevie was a giver. Stevie made me better. He brightened my day.He was good to me.”
Let that be your desire, too, to leave people better off than when you met them. Excel in the grace of giving and glorify God in all you do and He who is able to do exceedingly,abundantly above and beyond what you ever asked or desires will supply all your desires according to His riches in heaven. When you are busy helping other people and fulfilling their needs, GOD is busy meeting your needs in greater magnitude. Give and it shall be given to you,a good measure,pressed down,running over,30,70 and 100 folds will be given unto you! Click
