Winston Churchill, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
What can you do to make a bigger difference? How rich is your life?
Feeling like you have nothing to give? Feeling poor (financially)? Remember this: More than anything, God asks us to be other-centered; He wants you to give away LOVE. When I lost hundreds of thousands of dollars to an embezzling business partner, I was extremely angry. But with time I realized that I still had something to give away…LOVE. The move I gave, the richer I felt. I wouldn’t trade my current life (one which has left me in debt and without my once well-working athletic body) for anything because I have learned that using my time to help my family, and my ministry to help others learn about God, has left me richer than ever before. The truth is: the riches of love are endless.
God always has your best interest in mind. Trust Him. Read His Word:
Philippians 2:3 3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,
Matthew 22:37-39 37Jesus replied: "'Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
