Most of us wait for goodness to come to us. We wonder why we don’t receive more, and yet many of us are holding back, refusing to give. We must be generous in giving of our material possessions as well as our emotional blessings. Simply put, we must be givers. If we expect God to bless our lives, we must bless others. Scripture says “The amount you give will determine the amount you get back” (Luke 6:38, NLT).
