About 2 weeks ago, I was having a discussion with a friend. We were talking about how intelligent a colleague of ours is. I don’t know, but maybe out of jealousy and annoyance, I asked myself out loud, Is God partial? Why does it seem like the person had it all together? Why did God create him so smart. Honestly, I didn’t know I had said that out loud. My friend looked at me and smiled. She gave me answers which I think I should share with everyone who may or may be asking the same question I did that day.

She said, 

“God is not partial, He is God and He loves us all equally so there’s no reason for Him to be partial. God has given each and everyone of us our strengths and weaknesses so we can complement each other. So whatever A is lacking, B has and whatever B lacks, A has. Now imagine a world where every single person has the same amount of abilities in all ramifications. There will probably be no Nobel prize because no one will see anyone’s success as something worth celebrating because since “we are on the same level, there’s nothing A can do that B can not do”. Hence success will never be celebrated and we won’t even see the greatness of God in our lives. In such a world, no one, and not even God gets credit for anything. Now the colleague of ours whom we think has it all definitely has something he’s weak at, of which is somebody’s strength. God has given us different strengths so we can appreciate his greatness in our lives. It is left for us to find these strengths and see how to use it to influence the world around us, and maybe to win a Nobel prize”.😏

Do have a wonderful week ahead.

TO LOVE IS TO GIVE

Happy Sunday all! 

Okay, so i learnt something worth sharing today. GIVING GENEROUSLY. 

How many of us love stingy people? I don’t think anyone would like a stingy person because it gets pissing lol. But we all love generous people, people that love to give without thinking twice. People that will give even when they have nothing left. People that give with a smile on their face. Some people are even generous to a fault!

A statement was made that really made sense to me Christian giving is a loving response to Christ’s death for us. Nonetheless, the call to giving is for everybody. Giving has love woven into it. You cant give to somebody if you don’t love the person (especially when the item is really precious). Trust me, giving is very difficult or could be very difficult. And we need to remember that nothing, nothing at all is for free. Even salvation came at a price. 

Lets leave mankind. We find it difficult to even give to God. For someone who gave his life for us on a cross. He left his throne, came down to earth to be beaten, stripped and spat upon by his own! It was difficult but he did it and God sent him because he loved us. Now, for a man like Jesus, nothing should be too much to give him. He has given it all. We find it difficult to even give him 5 minutes of our time. It doesn’t need to be money. it could be time, attention, praise, worship.

Back to man. We don’t receive by clenching our fists. We need to let go to receive the bigger thing. To see the bigger picture. 

When we give, we receive. To give is to love. We don’t reason as God does. Sometimes His instructions seem foolish to us but we don’t know what He has in store for us. He just wants us to let go.  

Giving should be willing because God is concerned with the heart.

Blessed is the man that gives!! GO AND GIVE!!

HAVE A GIVING WEEKKK LOL
