SHARING IS A GIFT.
IT IS A WORTHWHILE GIFT.
If you know the wonderful blessings of sharing, you will not hesitate to share your blessings. “He who gives to the poor will never lack, but he who shuts his eyes will have many curses’ (Proverb 28:27).
Sharing gives joy. It brings more blessings. It binds people. It pleases God. In Hebrew 13:16 we are told, “Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”
We all have something we can share. It maybe we have money, knowledge, talent, time, love, etc. Teaching children to share instills in them kindness, team spirit, compromise, love, generosity, etc. Thus, we say sharing is not only a vital social skill but also a response to God’s call.
God wants you to share
He wants you to share the good things that you receive. He blesses you not for you alone. He blesses you to share with others. He blesses you to bless others; and sharing blesses those to whom you share. “Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none, and whoever has food must do likewise.”
God passes through people to enrich others. He uses people to work miracles in other people’s lives. In sharing, the good that comes to us is spread to others. Thus, sharing makes the world a better place for everybody.
Through sharing we bless ourselves
When we share, we bless ourselves too. We open the way for more blessings to come to us because we become channels of good not only to other but to us also. Sharing is like giving a smile. The more smiles we give, the more smiles we have on our lips. The more you share, the more you have to share.
Many stories teach us to share
The story of the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee teaches us to share. These two seas get their water from the same source. While the Sea of Galilee receives its own water and passes it on, the Dead Sea receives its own and swallows it.
Because the Sea of Galilee shares its water by passing it on, it is alive. It is fresh and contains fish and other living creatures.
Because the Dead Sea swallows its own water, it is dead. It is not fresh; and it does not have any living thing in it.
What is not shared eventually dies. It does not multiply. The things that are shared multiply.
When you share you get:
- The joy of making life more beautiful for others;
- You make more people happy.
- The world has more happy persons.
- Their happiness is a prayer for you.
- God is pleased with you.
- When God is pleased with you, He blesses you.
We bloggers have been sharing our blessings in different ways. We must continue to share. Many of the posts we find on the net are blessings to us. We can share them without getting up from our seat.
