You’re Lifted In Lifting Others
“It is possible to give away and become richer! It is also possible to hold on too tightly and lose everything. Yes, the liberal man shall be rich! By watering others, he waters himself”
(Proverbs 11:24-25 TLB).
It’s not enough to live long; it’s what you live for that really matters. There are those who lived for more than a hundred years, but made no impact in the lives of those around them; there was just nothing significant about their lives. They really didn’t contribute to their society; always ‘taking’, never giving back.
Are you contributing positively to the advancement of the lives of those around you? This is a question you must ask yourself and truthfully answer. Choose to live a meaningful life. One that’ll make the world move forward, touching the lives of others in a positive way. Be a blessing to others, and you’ll always be lifted, for you’re lifted as you lift others! Your promotion is in your promoting others. Your success is discovered when you help others become.
You’ll never discover the treasure God has kept in you until you reach out to help someone else become something. That’s where real joy is! This is because “The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself” (Proverbs 11:25). Hallelujah!
God will make happen for you what you make happen for others. So keep helping those around you stand strong and tall; help them discover their God-given potentials; be a part of their success story.
If you’re an employer, help those in your employ realize their dreams for success. In the same way, as an employee in an organization, be diligent; commit yourself to improving that organization. Make the progress of that organization your priority, for in her prosperity shall you also prosper .
Dear heavenly Father,
I ask that you grant me today, the grace, wisdom and strength to always recognize the need of those around me, that I may bring them hope, and inspire them to success and greatness. I thank you for making me a lifter and a helper of others. Today, I choose to help someone be a success,
in Jesus’ Name.
