One of the greatest assets we have as human beings is the ability to help someone else. There are so many things you have on the inside of you that can help someone else. There are services you can provide to help someone. There are talents and gifts you have that you can bless someone with? How helpful are you? Do you give of yourself? Are you an opportunist? An opportunist is the one who helps only when it will benefit them, selfish gain. When we look at the life of Christ, nothing he did was for his personal gain. He didn’t see an opportunity and say, well let me help him because in the long run it will benefit me. Jesus wasn’t self-serving. He was a servant, period. We need to develop a mindset of servitude. We need to help for someone else’s sake, not to brag and say we did that for them, or we prayed for them, or we gave that to them. In fact, the only time people should know you did something for someone is if the recipient chooses to share their testimony or someone else honors you for your good deed. The Bible clearly tells us not to brag on what we do.
Matt 6:1-4 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
It is time to use what God has blessed you with to bless others. Be a blessing and you will be blessed! Why? Because you reap what you sow.
