I can’t out give God. I use to try when I was younger. Probably why I can’t retire, lol.
But I can help Him in His giving. By forgiving and sharing what I have and being the person He created me to be. With an attitude of thankfulness and joy.
First letting go of all hurt and seeking forgiveness from those whom I hurt.
Second, The sharing comes pretty natural. Helping others to me is just the right thing. Not always easy or comfortable but if God calls I answer. So there have been times when I say things to God like are you sure? Or how can I help? But if He calls I just know what I have to do.
Becoming the person I am created to be is in the first two. God created me with free will and all the people around me have choices. Sometimes in life I got hurt and decided to hold grudges. Sometimes I did the hurting. Maybe it’s just old age but forgiving and seeking forgiveness is freedom. Christ did it first as an example. The 12-steps has that making amends step to get me through the hard stuff.
Just thinking of things I can do to help today. Sometimes I can only pray for others because I am powerless over things like cancer and death. But God has the power.
