(Be A Helper And Lifter Of People)
TO THE BIBLE: Proverbs 11:24-25 NIV
“One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”
It’s not enough to live a long life; 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 were always taking, never giving back or contributing meaningfully to their society. 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. Remember what the scriptures says in Proverbs 11:25 (GNB), “Be generous, and you will be prosperous. Help others, and you will be helped.”
If you’re a leader or aspiring to be a leader in whatever capacity, help people realise their dreams for success. God is interested in lifting you when you derive joy in other people’s progress. Help those around you to be strong and fulfilled, let them be glad that they met you because you played a part in them making a success of their lives.
Luke 6:31; Luke 6:38
Dear heavenly Father, I ask that you grant me today, the grace, wisdom and strength to always recognise 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. Amen.
