Think more about others (2)

July 30, 2021

“He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and He will pay back what he has given.” Pr 19:17 NKJV

 

Here are four ways in which you can express kindness and generosity toward others. (1) Giving your time. Giving a few hours of your time to someone, especially if you’re a busy person, can mean the world to a person who’s hurting. (2) Giving your talent. Organizations like Habitat For Humanity and Doctors Without Borders marshal the talents of gifted people to relieve suffering and provide shelter to the needy. That’s Scriptural! (See Mt 25:34-46). (3) Giving your treasure. “He who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord, and He will pay back what he has given.” Can you imagine the interest God pays? (4) Giving your temperament. Everybody you meet, struggles with anxieties and fights battles they usually don’t talk about. So, your smile and word of encouragement can be like a lifeline that helps keep them afloat that day. Selfishness is so innate in each of us that it’s like breathing; we do it without thinking. So, in order to change we must rearrange our priorities and reprogram our minds and decide, “I will not let this day pass until I have said or done something to help, bless, and encourage another human being.” God told Abraham, “I will bless you…and you shall be a blessing” (Ge 12:2 NKJV). Today pray: “Father, I thank You for every resource and advantage You have given me. Help me always to remember that these blessings are from You, and that they are to be shared with others for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.”
