Our kind of giving matters . . .

Isn’t it that when you help, you don’t count the time you have spent? You don’t even remember the time you’ve stretched  out just to save somebody from shame.  When God uses someone as an instrument for someone in need, God blesses the person, who by heart responded without grudging but full of joy and kindness. 

When you thought that somebody is around offering a help, a shoulders to cry and a hand to tap your shoulders and say, “hey, I’m just here for you”,  and you discovered that it was not at all real, really, really pains. When you realize that what has been extended to you were accounted in every detail . . . hurts! 

 Nobody can avoid the thought of regret, that should you only knew then, you should not have accepted such help. But it happened, and you have been there. The mere fact of hearing that somebody telling you something blistering, is actually a torn . . . a bruise . . .  in your heart! The giving and the helping that are full of regrets are just the same as never had given anything!

When your right hand gives, you don’t even allow your left hand see it. because God blesses the giving in secret! Somehow, let’s still be positive! God is adding more patience as He allowed these kind people to come in contact with us. Let’s get back to the 90/10 principle. Giving wholeheartedly gives us peace that passeth all understanding!

2 Corinthians 9:7, “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.”
