Today I offer a challenge

Pr. 11:25:  “The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself.”

One of our universal laws is that we reap what we sow.  God also reminds us that He measures us with the same measure we use towards others.

If we are generous, both in the flesh, but also in spiritual things, then we are sowing generosity, which we will also later reap.  When we “water” others, we ourselves will be watered.

Do you need something from the Lord?  Are you looking for guidance, a special Word, a fresh anointing?  Water someone else.  Feed spiritual things into someone else today, intentionally, and you will also be fed spiritually.  Water someone with rivers of living water and out of your heart will flow even more.

You can only share what is already in your heart.  If you have hidden God’s Word in your heart, and have had time in prayer with Him, you will be full and running over.  Share with someone else!  If you need to fill up a little, then do that first and then share.

Today’s challenge:  Intentionally water someone.  Intentionally sow something spiritual into someone’s life.

I would love to hear about it.  If you feel comfortable, comment and share with me what you intentionally chose to do.  Share a special devotion with someone, read a Bible story with your children, ask someone what the Lord has done for them lately to get a conversation started.  Whatever you choose, choose it intentionally.  Maybe what we share will give someone else an idea for tomorrow.  I will do it, too, and we can share together how the Word went forth today.  🙂

You aren’t doing this to be selfish.  He freely offers us this promise.  Notice you have to give first in order to get.  You will be sharing the love of the Lord.  In that you can never go wrong!  His Word will always accomplish the purpose for which He sends it forth.

I will use Paul’s words to the Romans to send you forward today:  “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Praying for you,

jamie

One thought on “Today I offer a challenge

  1. My intentional watering for today: I watched for and pointed out a moment when my daughter was living out the verse we spoke about in Sunday School this past Sunday. Grow, baby girl, grow!
