To Give and To Receive

There are loyal hearts; there are people brave.
There are souls that are caring, true and pure.
And you? Give to the world the best you have,
The best will come back to be returned to you.
Give love, and the love in your heart will flow.
God’s strength is there in your deepest need.
Have faith, and a score of hearts will show
To you, their faith in God’s place in your heart.
Dispense truth; your gift will be paid back in kind
And honour that is seen, and honour will be met
Two of God’s people connect in their mutual love.

Extend truth, and your gift will be paid in trust,
A smile that is just as warm and sweet to meet
Give sorrow and concern to those who mourn,
You will receive more when troubles plague you.
The seeds of caring in your thoughts out- bourne
Though you are sowing ask nothing in return
For the life that you lead surely note is taken
That you are exactly what you say and do.
The fragrance of God’s love has permeated others
God’s love will come flowing back to you.

Remember, you can never out-give the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 4:1 ~ “Furthermore then, we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.”
Proverbs 16: 9 ~ “A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.”
Psalms 37:23 ~ “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.”
