How can you be helpful in your life?
Most of us tend to get but forget to give with all the things available to us.
The following is a message ta many of us need to consider!
** It’s deeply important to God that we’re mindful to bless others with what He’s entrusted to us (see Galatians 6:9-10). We must all make sure that we’re not like the stingy man in the Bible who had so much that all of his barns were full with no room for more. Instead of giving any of it away, he decided that he would tear down the barns he had and just build bigger ones to collect more stuff for himself.
Personally, I think he was the dumbest man in the Bible.
He could have decided to use what he had to bless others, but he must’ve been a fearful, selfish man who only had room in his life for himself (see Luke 12:16–20). God called the man a fool and said, This very night they [the messengers of God] will demand your soul of you; and all the things that you have prepared, whose will they be?(Luke 12:20 AMPC).
The man was going to die that night and all he would leave behind was “stuff.” He could have added to so many lives, put smiles on thousands of faces and left a beautiful legacy, but he chose to only care about himself.
Guess what: We don’t have to do the same thing! God’s Word says that He provides for our needs and gives us seed to sow into the lives of others (see 2 Corinthians 9:6-15). So we can decide to invest our time, our finances, our talent, and our efforts into blessing others and building His kingdom and when we do, we’ll never regret it.
Prayer Starter: Lord, my barns may not be full, but thank You that I still can give in such a way that others are blessed. Help me to be willing to give of my “stuff," my time, and myself to invest in eternity. In Jesus’ name, amen.
