I used to think that if I don’t get a good dose of joy myself, then I’m unable or unqualified to bring joy to other people’s lives. I’ve since changed my paradigm.
I’ve learned that it takes just a little effort and will power to make someone’s day.
When I share the little I have it goes out and comes back to me in a boomerang effect.
It’s selfish of me to think that because I don’t have what I want, I’ve got nothing to share.
I could be unhappy, but at the same time possessing the seed to someone’s happiness.
At Gethsemane, Jesus wasn’t happy about going to the cross. But He knew my happiness depended thereon. So He went.
Anybody can give when in affluence; true generosity is seen when we give out of little.
