No Matter How Small

29 Mar

“Give something, however small, to the one in need.  For it is not small to one who has nothing.  Neither is it small to God, if we have given what we could.”  ~ St. Gregory Nazianzen

If you have been blessed by God, give freely to bless another.  “But I don’t have enough to make it count,” you might say.  I say otherwise.  God always gives us what we need and He gives us enough to share.  If we share what God has given to us with another, they will be blessed as well because God will bless our giving to make it sufficient for them.

God is wonderful that way.

Too many times we tell ourselves that we don’t have enough.  Sometimes it’s because we don’t want to share in the first place.  Other times it’s because we really do feel as if our gift is paltry compared to others around us.

We should remember that we don’t need to compare ourselves to anyone else.  As long as we stand up in the sight of God, we are enough.  And if we give to another, that will be made enough by God as well.

So give.  Give freely.  Give confidently.  Give cheerfully.  For in the giving, you will receive even more as God knows that you are willing to share with others.

FAITH ACTION:  If you have been blessed by God, give freely to bless another.
