Have you ever stopped to really appreciate God’s unconditional love towards you?
God is a bestower of good gifts, and each day He sends forth His rich blessings on mankind. While some of us are provided with the basic necessities of life, there are others around us who are less fortunate and could benefit from our tremendous blessings. As a result, God is expecting you to share your blessings to bless others.
There is great happiness to be derived from giving, and furthermore, when you share your blessings, you will reap physical and spiritual rewards. Can you believe that?
Luke 6:38 outlines this principle as it states that you should:
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38) NIV

Why not share your blessings with someone today? I know sometimes, you may tend to hold on to what you have with the belief that you will never have enough to sustain you, but God has promised to reward you with His blessings. You can always trust His promises.
While your primary motivation to share your blessings should not be based on you expecting a reward, God promises that when you give, your reward will “run over.” This means that you will be blessed in abundance.
How often should you share your blessings? Give willingly and as often as possible, depending on your ability and the opportunities that confront you. Not only will you be rewarded with what you give, but you will be blessed in “great measure” so that you can continue to give to others.
As a child of God, your generosity is a reflection of the character of Christ. When you share your blessings, others will come to know God as the kind and loving Father that He is – A God who is rich in mercy and extends grace to His children. As a result, they can confidently place their hope and trust in Him, knowing that He is a constant provider, and He cares.
Do you think you can outdo God’s giving? No, not at all. God is The Great Giver.
As the song “You Can’t Beat God Giving,” by Billy Preston, rightly states:
You can’t beat God’s giving, no matter how you try
And just as sure as you are living
And the Lord is in heaven on high
The more you give, the more He gives to you
But keep on giving because it’s really true
That you can’t beat God’s giving, no matter how you try
God extends his goodness and His grace toward each of us in spite of our failures. Let us continue to share His love and His rich blessings with others as we actively participate in the plan of salvation.
