Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered. –Proverbs 11:25
God is so clear sometimes. I am so stupid sometimes.
In the last weeks, God has repeatedly shown me a theme which I chose to ignore: giving. He has shouted to me that His way is not selfish. He has called me to give up everything I hold dear and precious and he will give it and more back to me.
It. is. hard. I love the things that are mine. My time. My church. My friends. And I don’t prefer to share them with anyone. Mine mine mine mine mine. I feel like the seagulls from Finding Nemo.
However, God has so graciously let me see the results of a couple of the areas that I’ve given to him. And let me tell you: it is amazing.
Tony Evans put it this way: Give to receive to give again. It’s a cycle. You never end with the receiving.
