Proverbs of a 38 yr old man

Give. Give. Give!

Give. Give, Give! Not me. I was stingy, not even a prayer I would give you. Let alone money, I would hoard even the praises that were due to people because of my jealousy and deceit. Especially God who deserves all my praise. All I did was take, take, take. Two for me and none for you. In a world where nothing is free, I dared not give a helping hand. Many times, I was content just to give enough and not give my best. For it is from the abundance of the heart that one speaks. And I was poor in spirit with nothing to give. Yes, all I did was take, take, take. Praise God that He made me realize I have everything I need if I just believe. There is always more than enough in Christ. You have so much to give even when it seems you have nothing. A gift opens doors for the one who gives it and brings him into the presence of great people. So, give the gift of your life in service to the LORD Jesus, and your name will be brought before the Throne room of Heaven. Never stop giving. The LORD never stops giving. He gives life every day and sustains through the night. He gives light to every man and lives to be a blessing in a fallen world. To give is to live and to take is to die. That is why Jesus died to take away our sins so that we would give our lives away to Him in the glorious pursuit and purpose of His Righteousness. Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. For whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. We bring nothing at birth; we take nothing with us at death. The LORD alone gives and takes. Praise the name of the LORD! For He gave us his all when he gave it all away on the Cross. Jesus, though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. He emptied himself on the Cross and filled every believer with the saving power of Holy Spirit. Now go and give, give, give. Go empty yourself to a dry and thirsty world, for you have been given living rivers of life within you that will never run dry. Merry Christmas.
