“And if you pour out that with which you sustain your own life for the hungry and satisfy the need of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in darkness, and your obscurity and gloom become like the noonday.” (Isaiah 58: 10, Amplified Bible Classic Edition)
Giving is always a blessing. It is a sunrise in our souls when we share of our own abundance. And, yes, we do have an abundance out of which to feed others, help them, and thus experience this brightness, peace, joy.
The riches you have are those qualities of goodness that come of God. They are uniquely expressed by you in the way you live, the ideas that you share and nurture, and mostly by the measureless quality of your love. Those spiritual attributes are not limited, and so your giving of them, as inspiration guides you, never depletes.
As we each share what we have, with an honest heart to benefit another, we are utilizing God’s own supply. This goodness never wastes away, and by its use we experience what we have. This enriches our own moments as well, awakens us to that inexhaustible substance of Love.
When a musician plays a song, he is not using up the notes or his own musicianship. He is giving music to others, feeling it himself, and gaining more skill, becoming more adept at what he does, and more confident to share it.
All our special gifts are like this. Those things that sustain us so well, can be given to others either by sharing human supply, supported by our pure intentions, or by giving through our own individual talents, our affection, our humor, our grace, and the powerful gift of sheer kindness.
Let the gloom dissipate in the glow of your natural generosity!
