When we die , what will it all mean? What will hoarding gifts and talents mean? What will my money mean? I cannot forget that money and material is not the ends…but the means to an end. Paper money, carbon material mean nothing without the touch of the creator, without the words “I love you” without the relationship there is no meaning to anything we do. As a blank page means nothing with out words, so is my life without the WORD.That’s why my focus is not on the money nor material, but the MEANING behind the material, and that’s why I can be generous being the world’s standards.
“One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. People curse the one who hoards grain, but they pray God’s blessing on the one who is willing to sell.”
– Proverbs 11:24-26, 28, 30 NIV
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”
Philippians 2:3-4 NIV
Do for others as you want them to do for you. – Luke 6:31
You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.
– Zig Ziglar
