I have a missionary friend in a poor country doing a great work with widows and orphans. Because of the extent of his work, he needs to employ the service of nationals. When looking for these people, he has told me that he looks for those people who are givers, not takers. He looks for those who give away what little they have. He finds that they are the most trustworthy people to help him in the work, as their giving is an indication of their love for others.
Are you a giver? Do you give your life to others? Do you give what you have to others? Will you be entrusted with true riches? Jesus said, “One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches?” (Luke 16:10-11).
