According to Joel Osteen, “Encouragement to others is something everyone can give. Someone needs what you have to give. It may not be your money; It may be your time. It may be your listening ear. It may be your arms to encourage. It may be your smile to uplift. Who knows?” he concluded.
So I ask, What’s is in hands to give? What measure of assistance are you willing to offer?
Nothing is ever too small to be given out. That little thing you regard as nothing maybe all that a person need to attain a boost.
And when you give, don’t expect to get a similar favour in return or ask for a repay of the favour done to one.
I know of people who give because of what they have in mind will be the reward for their ‘kindness’. They know that they will always get a similar favour or in another form from the person they ‘helped’. But why do so?
Don’t you know that the best time to help is usually when you’re least expecting something in return for the help rendered.
Extend your arms of kindness to all, irrespective of the person it’ll get to.
” In this world, it’s not what we take up but what we give that makes us rich.” That’s from Henry Ward Beecher.
What else can I give since I don’t have money? You might want to ask.
According to the former quote above, it must not be your money or any of your material possessions. It may be the spare time. Give out that spare time of ours. Someone out there is in dire need of your it, your company, your listening ear to relate his experience with you. It may be a hug nobody have given to him for a while. Your prayers, someone needs your intercession. Your smile, it can brighten up ones day and even cause the once saddened face to come to life again. Or better still your words of encouragement which will go a long way a giving hope to those in despair.
Givers never lack. Give, it shall be given unto you.
John Ruskin better summarized it by saying “A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great of money.”
Again, Give! Give!! Give!!!
