Today's topic is all about giving. I always like to include gratitude when entering this topic. If we focus our thoughts on God's goodness each day, even for just a couple of minutes...our hearts will swell remembering all that He has given us. His generosity is so grand, and never ending. He gave us another chance through His son Jesus, sent him down to us.. He taught us, touched us, healed us, loved us...up to the eventual giving His Life for us. By doing that, He reunited us with the Father for those who repented and accepted Him as their Lord and Savior...After He ascended up to Heaven (giving us awe) He send His very own Spirit to accompany us through our life...at our calling. He gives us His own Body and Blood each day in the sacrament of the Eucharist and fully in ALL the sacraments...he's such a Giver....so, it is through His example we should become givers, too. Because He has given us so much, and we can see it in the evidence of our every day life...we should be shouting with joy, dancing with glee, full of gratitude. Because God is not prejudice, for it rains on the good and bad, He wants us to not be prejudice, too, when giving. He wants us to give, with a cheerful disposition, passing on the blessing of giving which first originated with Him, flowing through us to the next recipient. This is how we let grace continue to flow and multiply, if we allow it. If you are in a bad mood , the secret is, giving!!!! It is the total antidote to get out of that funk....try it if you don't believe me...its been tested and tried by yours truly and many others....because all the things He wants us to do is good for our well being, anyway!!!
I truly believe that prosperity is not only in spirituality, not only materially but also psychologically. "he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully"- So sow bountifully, willfully, joyfully, generously- and see how His wondrous works in your Life as you receive prosperity in all ways.
Dear Father in Heaven,
Thank you for sending Jesus, the perfect prototype, the example that I can live by. Thank you for all that I have, which completely surpasses all that I don't have. Send me you Holy Spirit every day, so I may ask for the attitude of gratitude and then when I give, it will be aligned with the right disposition. Help me to see that all I have is from You, and all I give to others, I am giving back to You. I love you , My God and Father the great Giver of all
