Live to Give – Do You Understand this Secret for Abundant Living and Growing Prosperity?
The Art of Giving is a Secret for Abundant Living!
One of the main ‘secrets’ of abundant living is:
The art of giving.
Don’t let a spirit of fear prevent you…
from giving and keep you in lack.
But if I Give I’ll Have Less
Unfortunately, a common belief many people have is that giving a portion of what they have will result in having less. Bear in mind, this belief causes many folks to live in fear of giving, and a lack of giving in turn prevents the flow of abundance in a person’s life.
Okay, okay. I hear you saying, “But, wait a minute. If I have 20 dollars and I give away 10, now I only have 10.”
Yes, this is true. In the natural 20 minus 10 equals 10, so in the short-term we may seem to have less. This is the same as a farmer who after planting his seed may seem to have less.
But bear with me a little longer; because, giving is a spiritual principle and it has the ability to change our spiritual and natural situation. When we give we are like the farmer who plants and tends his seed; then after some time receives his harvest.
“Give, and it shall be given to you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you give it shall be measured back to you.”
— Luke 6:38
The More You Give, The More You Have
The paradox of life is that the more you give, the more you have. We see this explained in the previously quoted verse. This verse gives an image of super-abundance. We can open a floodgate of blessings into our lives by giving to others freely.
The thing is, when we give money, forgiveness, love, etc., it opens spiritual channels that set in motion a movement of abundance that circulates around and comes back to us in profound and indirect ways.
Giving is like planting seeds. We have to actually plant the seeds if we expect to receive a harvest. And if we plant a small amount, we receive a small harvest; plant a large amount and we receive a large harvest.
Give Abundantly and Live Abundantly
We can give abundantly and live abundantly. Remember also, that you are rich in the respect that you have a spirit that is inexhaustible. So let no mean attitude or selfish thought keep you from sharing this spirit. Be a generous giver at heart and in all you do.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
— Winston Churchill
Mark my words: Life will take on a whole new meaning for you as you live to give. Give and keep giving. Give from the heart; of your time, money, comfort, and resources. Then don’t be surprised as you begin to live abundantly.
May you live to give and learn this secret for abundant living and growing prosperity!

Would You Like 2 Easy Steps That Attract Abundant Favor To Prosper?
Apply These Two Easy Steps to Attract Prosperous Favor for a New Lease on Life!
There is no better time than now to attract some favor. Especially if you are like so many who are ready to throw in the towel or feel like their back is up against the wall. Have years of sowing negative thoughts attracted negative, sour, people and situations into your life?
It’s no wonder, because your thoughts are the beginning of your reality. Constantly thinking and speaking negative will short circuit favor from getting through to you.
But the GOOD NEWS is, there is ABUNDANT FAVOR available to you. You are made in God’s image. In you is the ability to give and receive favor. God is reaching out His hand of favor to you. You must stop thinking you are not capable or worthy of receiving and giving His favor. A strong negative spirit will hinder your ability to reach out and receive much of this favor.
Know where you stand. God is a God of love, favor, and mercy. You are an outlet for His power to flow through to bless you and others. He is constantly promoting those who learn to live in this law of favor. To be on track, you must follow His steps.
Attract Favor by Following Two Easy Steps:
#1 – First you must think, believe, and expect favor to flow from God and others to you. Get your thoughts in-line and see yourself receiving favor everywhere you go and in everything you do.
#2 – Second, you need to favor others even when they are ugly and unkind to you. Give favor to others daily.
Plain and simple, you reap what you sow. Give and the Lord will make men give unto you. Set yourself up to receive favor. Meditate and sow good thoughts of blessings to others.
We are told in 2 Corinthians 9:10 that God gives seed to the sower. As you give, God continues to fill your life with fresh favor to prosper. But just like electricity has no power until the circuit is completed, favor has no power until your circuit is completed. You must let it flow to others.
A new lease on life can be yours. Reach out beyond your present “rut” by expecting favor. Develop an attitude of being blessed to be a blessing. Watch as you leap into new levels of favor and growing prosperity in your life!
God bless you,
