Like a falling star - that quiet moment when you see and hear and understand a living word from God.
With His Word He can Catch a Falling Star,
He will take you as you are.
Just talk to Him about your life.
The more you turn over to Him, the more He can help.
You may entertain angels unaware
And find peace.
Do Good - sow good seeds, you will reap blessings,
goodness and mercy.
Give - the life you change will be yours.
Wisdom is better tha rubies.
Forgiveness multiplies your harvest.
Life Lessons ~ When you give, you enrich your life.
You are the one who benefits most.
The life you change will be yours.
If you are not giving, you are the one who most needs to give. (You live in a field where nothing is growing. The world is a field.)
There is a special reward for those who feed the hungry and clothe the naked.
What goes around comes around - because your life is a field and you are sowing seeds into it all day long.
"Giving" is "Sowing" and is most productive when it is given without expectation of receiving.
Giving is almost always thankless, but the rewards will be more than you can ask or think.
You are called to be a force for good.
Accomplish great things through giving and serving - you will enlarge your borders.
There is a richer reward for those who choose the greater good of mankind before personal prestige.
Many people who are living in poverty or are homeless have jobs but don't make enough to pay for the basic necessities of life.
Anyone can fall on hard times, it oould happen to you.
What can you give?
