Moving Forward. Giving Back.

It's one of the great mysteries of life. What you wish for others (good or bad) you often get yourself.

God shares this in the story in the Book of Job in the bible. Job, once rich, started experiencing horrible setbacks. His friends came to console him. Nothing worked until he humbled himself before God. He stopped thinking about himself and prayed for his friends instead. It worked! Everything turned around for Job and his life was twice as good as it was before.

Why is that? You humble yourself and life promotes you.  

The fear of the LORD is the instruction for wisdom, and before honor comes humility. Proverbs 15:33

You'll notice the most successful businesses have the best customer service. Discerning customers are willing to pay the highest prices for expensive luxury products and services especially and often specifically due to the top quality and attentive care of its employees. When the customer service falters, so does the value of the brand. If that brand is you, then you must give and serve others with the upmost care.

It may seem counter-intuitive, but in order to go up, you must humble yourself and be generous to others. Give to charity, and you prosper more. Give to others in need as you once were (or are), and life gets easier. Doors open and you just move forward.

Everything in the universe (nature) is balanced. Too much of anything GOOD or BAD is destructive.

Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, but humility goes before honor. Proverbs 18:12

People often spend so much time with technology, they forget humanity is part of nature's balance wheel. Focus and striving for success is rewarded in our culture, but true and lasting peace actually comes from consistent giving. Everyone has a cause or group they believe in even if they don' believe in GOD (who is, was, and ever shall be).


"7 From the days when your ancestors served Me, you have turned from and ignored My statutes. Return to Me and I, the Eternal, Commander of heavenly armies, will return to you. But you shameless people ask, “How will we return? Will someone steal from God?” Yet you are always stealing from Me! But you self-centered people still ask, “How have we stolen from You?” In the tithes and the offerings you have not given Me as the law requires! You are cursed with a curse, for as an entire nation you are stealing from Me. 10 To rectify this situation, you must bring the entire tithe into the storage house in the temple so that there may be food for Me and for the Levites in My house. Feel free to test Me now in this. See whether or not I, the Eternal, Commander of heavenly armies, will open the windows of heaven to you and pour a blessing down upon you until all needs are satisfied. 11 I will rebuke the swarm of locusts devouring your crops, and the devourer will not cause the produce you have grown in the earth to decay or the vines in the field to drop their grapes. 12 And all the nations will call you blessed, for you will be a land of delight. I, the Eternal, Commander of heavenly armies, promise you this." Malachi 3:7-12
 
Select a church, synagogue or charity that helps others out of poverty (physically and/or spiritually). Give them ten percent of every dollar you make unconditionally. It is the oldest, wisest and most reliable way to continuously move forward in your own life.

You have to know what you want. Set a worthy goal. Decide where you're going to give and commit to doing it every time you get paid with no strings attached.

Sound too easy? Try it.

God honors commitment and giving back to others. Consistency is key! #MyLOVEisONE
