The Richness of Our Lives

What do you have that you can give away?

Is it money? Skills? Talent? Time? Knowledge?

More often than not, my epiphanies come from being in the washroom. This particular epiphany is no exception, coming while showering.

We all possess something that can be given away. More often than not, we have more than one of those four things that we can give away.

That is the richness of our life. When we give away one of these things, it shows that we are rich in those things.

If I cling to those things, to my money, to my time, to hide my talent or skills, it tells of an attitude of impoverishment.

Yet the whole irony behind giving these things away is that invariably, the better you steward them for the benefit of others, the more you will receive back. That is called an investment of riches.

On the flip side, the more you try to keep them to yourself, the more impoverished you will be. That is called indulgence towards impoverishment.

We’re all given things with which we can choose to invest in others, or indulge for ourselves.

What will you choose?

“The more you give, the more you will receive.” – Unknown
“Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.” (Mark 4:25 NIV)
