We all came into this world with nothing and it’s certain that we will leave this world with nothing. No matter the qualification and possession a man possesses while on earth, in a twinkling of an eye they are all gone, the only thing that will remain is the impact he took while on earth.
The world will not celebrate a man on how he lived his life, the world will only celebrate a man on the impact he made when he was alive. That means to say the world will not celebrate you on how you lived your life, the world will only celebrate you on the positive impact you took on earth.
Nobody has ever been rewarded for what he received but for what he gave, you can only be rewarded for what you give not what you receive. You cannot be a giver and remain a beggar, There is a popular saying that “says givers never lack”. For you not to be a beggar and for you not to be guilty of God’s given wealth in your life, you must practice to be a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7 says Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
What are you living For ?
Are you living to make a living or you are living to make a giving
Are you living to patch your life or you are living to make an impact in life.
Many of us are guilty of God’s given wealth in our life because all we think of all the time is me myself and I only. We don’t think of others at all. Very few don’t see why they should give to their wife, husband, children and relatives, while some don’t even think about that poor widow in her street because she hasn’t come to beg from her. Don’t wait until they come to beg you, don’t let God regret the wealth he has given you. Show love to everyone you have the capacity to by giving. Let’s Stop the altitude of me myself and I alone. I call it the (MMI) formula.
There are some of us who give little or nothing at all to the expansion of the kingdom of God, yet you can invest one million naira on (MMM) when you can’t even invest one thousand naira for the kingdom. Hmmm, God is watching. Our God is a righteous God, he will reward everybody according to their works.
Revelation 22:12-13 says And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Let’s not forget that we are not the owner of the wealth, we are just a stewardship of it, the owner can come for it anytime.
Let’s not make the world a terrible place to live by thinking about me, myself and I only, the (MMI) formula. Be generous enough to show love and compassion in making this world a better place.
Let’s live to give, live to love, live to help, live to care, live to make impact, don’t forget that whatever you sow you shall reap, you can’t sow maize and harvest rice, they might look alike but they are totally different.
Galatians 6:7-8 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
If you have not been giving before, start giving, if you have been giving before, give more, if you have been a cheerful giver before, you can still do more, don’t wait until they come to beg you, give to them that are in need, give to organizations, give to the expansion of the kingdom of God, give to that widow, give to that child, just give and give and give.
Proverbs 11:24-25 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
Don’t be guilty of God’s given wealth in your life, don’t be hand tighten; release what is your hand for God to put another one there. Thank you and remain blessed.
