share with others



The way we look at and use what we have says a lot about how we live life and what is important to us.  You’ve heard people say people, “you can replace things, but you cannot replace people.”  Heard that most recently from a family that was involved in a fire.  They shared how blessed they were after the horrible accident.

2 Corinthians 9:8  NLT
And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.

How blessed are you?  What has God given you that you are being asked to share with others?

This might be a tangible material thing.  This might be a talent you have worked hard on.  Use your singing voice to bless others.  If you are a good teacher, teach.  If you have been blessed with enough money to live, give.  Be generous.

1 John 3:17  NTL
If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?

Proverbs 11:25  NLT
The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

Look around.  The reason why we are blessed is so we can bless others.  If we are watching, we will see needs we can meet and kindness we can give.

Don’t hold back.  Share with others.  Notice how God gives back to you.  He loves to bless His kids.

This morning if you are my Facebook friend watch my page for a little something special about my e-devotions.  Now, go and be generous!
