Charity work, giving arms to the poor,donation,hospital visitation is essential in Christian’s Life. Giving and charity work is one thing that is common and endorsed by every belief system.
What did the good Samaritan did according to the parable? he picked up the man severely attacked by robbers, took him to hospital and paid his bills. That singular act earned him the title ”GOOD”.
Are you a giver? If yes, keep it up; if no start giving little and you will grow from little to big. Never wait to start high, start low and grow to high level. Only the burial(grave) starts from high level to low level.
Every giver wants to get result_make the receiver happy and satisfied. Every giver wants the receiver to be appreciative but this is most often not the case.
How would you feel if you give to a needy follow and he/she rejects it even in your presence?
How Do I Give To Get Result?
1 Don’t Give What You Rejected
That someone is less privileged or is in dilemma does not mean he doesn’t have choice.Never amend a torn clothe you rejected and serve it as a gift to another person. The person definitely will not be happy or appreciative.
A pastor told a story of a woman that bought an over-ripe plantain for a poor widow. The pastor called the woman after and asked her, would you buy this type of plantain for yourself?
The woman replied “she(the poor widow) should even be happy someone bought plantain for her as she has no husband nor helper”
Do you think that poor widow will appreciate such plantain? Even God would not be happy with such wicked giving.
2 Don’t Give For Applause
Why would someone visit orphanage home and along with him media to video record his donation and good works? You want the world to see your charity work?
The Bible has a word for you:
When your Right hand does good, do not allow your left hand know.
This simply means do no publicize your good works or things you donate.
3 Don’t Give With Ulterior motive
Some men gives to a widow with the mind of taking advantage of her_ The result such men will get is perpetual curse. Some are even church-men
I wonder how a brother will buy Fanta and snacks for a sister and expect sex as result_it is bad and never supposed to be a result. Jesus Christ fed five thousand men and many women also without expecting anything. Why not have that mindset?
4 Do not give to God to get double of what you gave; you think it is double data?
5 Do not remind people of you arms/donation to them
6 Do not give someone aid publicly, it is embarrassing
7 Donate and expect nothing from the person you donated to
8 When You want to donate/help a needy person, consider if going through someone(giving someone the gift to give to who you wish) would be better. This depends on the type of person you want to give.
