Dreaming To Give
“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
““When you do something for someone else, don’t call attention to yourself. You’ve seen them in action, I’m sure—‘playactors’ I call them—treating prayer meeting and street corner alike as a stage, acting compassionate as long as someone is watching, playing to the crowds. They get applause, true, but that’s all they get. When you help someone out, don’t think about how it looks. Just do it—quietly and unobtrusively. That is the way your God, who conceived you in love, working behind the scenes, helps you out.” Matthew 6:2-4 MSG
I’m going to leave this right here and let it marinate into your soul. “Dream of what you can give instead of get, and see how much further you can go.”
Okay, has it marinated enough yet? A lot of us strive for more. With that desire to strive for more, we sometimes Dream of what could happen when we get to the place we are striving. In those Dreams we picture all the stuff we can get. The fun toys we can play with, the more famous it can make us with people of importance, and the assurance of having all our bills payed. Which is great when you reach the goals you set and receive what you want. Right? HOORAY FOR YOU!!
But I want to challenge you today, instead of dreaming what you can get, Dream of what you can Give! When you strive for your goals and get get get, it can only go so far. You can’t take any of what you get for yourself with you when you die. But, if you go beyond the Get mentality and take on the Give mindset, generations are changed. Imagine a world changed through what you gave. I challenge you to find a need and fill it. Start today and see how much further you can go!
