You ever wonder why it seems like some people never worry about anything. All of their needs and even some of their wants always seem to be met. Please understand that it’s not by coincidence. It’s simply based on the fact that they are givers. When we serve as a blessing to others, our blessings come seamlessly. The people who have and will continue to experience increase in their lives are the ones who are not afraid to give without regret. When we bless God’s children unselfishly, God blesses us unselfishly.
We have all heard the old adage “To whom much is given, much more is required”. Unfortunately, there aren’t enough people who subscribe to this concept. Most people subscribe to the idea that the more they have, the more they want and the more they should hold on to. They never consider the fact that they have been blessed with what they have in order to provide for others. The more we provide for others unselfishly, the more we will be blessed with to provide.
Walk in the understanding that your gifts are meant to be shared. The more you try to hold on to them, the less you will have. And besides, you can’t take them with you when you expire out of your earth suit anyway so why not share your gifts with the world while you can. Here’s a little secret; the more you give, the more you will have and the more you have, the more you should give. If you haven’t been experiencing increase in your harvest, try giving some of it away to someone in need. And almost like magic, your storehouse will begin to overflow.
God truly blesses those who unselfishly bless others.

Some of us have a hard time asking for help. In most cases, we are so used to doing everything ourselves that we won’t even bother soliciting the assistance of others. Understand that while you are very capable of figuring out your own solutions, you may be able to find one twice as fast if you simply collaborated with others.
In some cultures around the world, it is taboo to ask for help. More specifically, you may have grown up in a home where asking for help was frowned upon. Growing up, I watched my father struggle as he attempted to figure things out himself. I watched as his pride motivated him to choose to remain silent while asking for help would have taken the same effort. It is a combination of pride and ego that restricted him and restricts most of us from reaching out and simply asking for help. This way of thinking and doing was passed down to me much like we learn and adopt a majority of our behaviors from our parents. That does not make it right nor should it be an excuse.
Although a majority of us try, we cannot figure everything out ourselves. Although some see it as a weakness to seek help, it truly takes a strong individual to put their pride aside and ask for help. In my experience, I did not understand the importance of seeking assistance until I finally took a chance and asked. I broke away from what I grew up learning was the way to do things and have benefitted tremendously. The time you spend on your journey towards a goal can be reduced by half if you simply ask for directions. If you don’t ask, you will not receive.
I strongly encourage you to ask for help, you would be surprised how many people would come to your rescue.

Many people sit and wonder why they don’t have much, questioning God about his distribution of blessings. They watch as others seem to enjoy life and all of the wonderful things that come with having a strong faith and belief system. Most of the time, they will never receive their blessings because they are too occupied watching others receive what is rightfully theirs rather than working on creating their own. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Commit to memory the fact that God blesses those who bless others. I’ll share a secret with you. Several years ago, I learned that the law of reciprocity is real. Real as in authentic and actually works! I always test a theory to see if it works and I expect you to do the same. The Law of Reciprocity subscribes to the thought that whatever it is you give out is what you should expect to get back. It makes complete sense to me.
If you are a selfish person, the world will respond to you in the same manner. Conversely, if you are a giving person it is important that you recognize that this is the real reason why you haven’t wanted for anything. That is the reason why it seems like all of your needs are met and even some of your wants. It is all because you have chosen to give.
Learn to be a constant blessing in the lives of others and watch as your own life overflows with blessings. I am living proof.
