Christmas Countdown, Day 2
I have been studying Prosperity Principles since I was 12 years old and given the time of year I thought a quick lesson on generosity was in order. Yesterday I was telling you that St. John of the Cross says that “a generous heart will never go part way”. So today I thought we would continue to talk about what true generosity is…understanding generosity as a principle will help you realize that it isn’t just about buying things, it is about so much more than that…
When you practice generosity you understand that there is an endless supply of everything that is required and that if you give some of ‘yours’ away it will be given back to you. No lack was ever created by giving, poverty never stems from generosity. Anne Frank said, “No one has ever become poor by giving.”
Poverty and lack are stimulated by a belief that there is a limited supply and this belief helps people to be selfish and hold on to what is ‘theirs’. GOD bestowed upon us an unending supply of substance which is manifested by the spirit of generosity.
What if everything you ‘had’ wasn’t really yours anyway, what if God gave it to you so that you could be generous with it and when you did that He would give you more? If you understood that as a truth how much would it change the way you act in your daily life? If someone asked you for a ride or for five dollars and you knew that if you gave it to them then God would see it multiplied back to you… would you then be more willing to give it?
Practicing generosity requires us to understand that we have been blessed with ABUNDANT supply, available to us by simply asking the Divine to send it and then having certainty that it will come.
Nobody ever became poor from giving; people have become poor by living in fear that there is a limited supply of money, work, good etc. When our willingness to give dries up from fear then we actually BLOCK our Divine Supply from being able to reach us. Generosity and the practice of it help to keep the Divine pipeline moving in a positive direction. Be generous today with whatever you have to give…time, attention, money, actions…A generous heart is a happy heart. See you tomorrow…xoxoxo
