A generous person will prosper
v. 25 The soul that blesses will be anointed,
and whoever gives water will also be given water.
The world is built on God's fundamental principles.
One of the important principles is the principle of mutuality.
You reap what you sow. There is a surest reaction for every action.
You breathe in and then what? Breathe out.
Just to survive for a moment you must give out. Greed is harmful for you.
To survive and prosper, you must give and not just take.
Have the awareness that you are living in the community
that is called the universe. You are not alone in the universe.
The moment you truly become alone is the moment
you disappear from the universe, which is impossible.
You are not alone means you are alive.
Life itself means to exist in the community
where you constantly interact with others.
A constant exchange continues to take place throughout your life.
1 Cor 15:40-41, "There are also heavenly bodies and
there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies
is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another.
The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another
and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor."
There are different individuals in the universe.
What kind of individual are you?
What kind of person do you want to become in this universe?
Do you want to shine like a star? Or like the moon? Or like the sun?
Daniel 12:3, "Those who are wise shine like the brightness of the heavens,
and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever."
The game of stars is a competition of who can love more.
All the participants will become stars but the one
who has loved others with all that they were given
will be given the title "the glory of God."
Those who love themselves and seek to please themselves
are not going to win the race.
Anybody who wants to become rich for the sake of becoming rich
will lose this game and become a black hole
which will absorb the lights of other stars.
How do you play the game of stars?
Know the rules.
1) You get from God multiple times of what you give in love.
2) You give secretly that God may receive glory
and you receive glory secretly from God.
"But when you give to the needy,
do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
so that your giving may be in secret.
Then your Father who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
Play by these rules and love all you are given.
Then you will win the game of stars and will be give the title of "God's glory."
