What has God provided us that we should not be grateful for? From the food grown from the soil to the talents we each possess. Everything is given by God almighty. How then can we hoard that which isn’t ours?
God gives abundantly and we are meant to give in the same way. God showers us with so much that we can share with others. Even when it seems that we only have enough for ourselves, we actually have enough to share with somebody else. When we see it from our eyes there isn’t enough. But through God’s eyes there is more than enough.
How can we withhold food from someone who is hungry if the food we have is a gift from God? At any point the soil can no longer produce food for us. What ownership do we then have on food? If we have something on our plate let us make sure someone else’s plate is not empty.
We can expand this to include our time. God gives us each breath we take so how can we use up our time exclusively for us? Let us provide friendship and our company to all who need it. From our nearest neighbor to the almighty God.
Are we having the same joy when we share with others or are we giving purely out of obligation?
