Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews: And how I kept back nothing that was profitable to you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house. Acts 20:19-20 KJV
TODAY’S THOUGHT: “Any hand that is genuinely helped by God pays attention to the needs and wants of others.”
It is a known fact that some people will want to hide what is working for them from others. This is common amongst those that do handwork, academia’s, professionals, businesses, even churches and other sectors. It is ignorant that will make you want to deny others what you know. Everything that we have was given by God, when this understanding is intact release of whatsoever gift and skill that we have is sure. When you see people hardened to the genuine needs of others, check the source of the blessing very well. Hands that are helped by God are genuinely attracted to the needs of others. They don’t see wrong and fail to correct it.
If you don’t want to teach others what you know don’t bother interacting with people. Because interaction between persons is an exchange of information and knowledge. Have you heard people say…“I suffered to get to where I am today with no one’s help’’ and because no one helped them they become wicked and hide important details that will make others grow. That mentality is wrong, if man didn’t help you, God helped you. Apostle Paul in our opening scripture spoke about how he suffered to attain the height he did, but that didn’t stop him from keeping back vital information that will make others grow in faith. When you teach others and give out what you know, your legacy is preserved and your seed secured.
Keep back nothing, freely you were given, freely you should release.
Don’t be bitter when others are making progress. The road you passed to get to point A is not the only road that everybody must pass. Decide to be a blessing to any life that you encounter.
Lord I ask that you baptize me with the heart to teach and to give what I know freely. May nothing prevent me from sharing my knowledge with others. Take away envy and wickedness that is unknown to me away from me in Jesus name. Help me Lord to show your love to everyone that encounters me in Jesus Mighty Name.
