Give and Be Blessed

The reason for giving
Is to share in service
To people in need
And fulfill a purpose.

Out of love of the Lord
We give our best
As love overflows
So others are blessed.

Generously feeding souls
With thoughts of plenty
So the treasure accrues
In the hearts of many.

Doing the Lord’s work
With a passion
Fulfilling a purpose
Beyond imagined.

Using time, resources
And the desire to share
With those in need
And our choice to care.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    This poem is inspired by 2 Corinthians 8:1-15. The motivation for giving should be to share in the service of the Lord’s people. Giving should be out of the love of the Lord that overflows so that others are blessed. This day with God, generously feed souls and ask that doors be opened so your treasure accrues in the hearts of many and fulfills a purpose beyond what could be imagined.
