I was inspired to this article from Chinkee Tan Book and I want to share it to others!
(THIS IS AN EXCERPT FROM BOOK RICH GOD POOR GOD)
We need to understand the principle and the process by which God releases His blessings in order for us to receive it in full. Once you receive it in full, there is a reason why God entrusted it to you. Just imagine, of all the billions of people on earth, why did God choose you? God can choose another person, but why you? Because God knows you are ready and you can be trusted.
Allow me to unveil the main reason why He wants you to prosper.
God wants you to prosper so that you can become a blessing to others.
God has entrusted the riches to us for a reason. Not only so we can live comfortable lives but also so we can make other people’s lives better.
Notice what the Lord’s prayer says.
Give us this day our daily bread.
What is so strange about this prayer is that it is a personal prayer. But how come we pray, “give US” and not “give ME”?
I believe God is teaching us to pray not only for our needs but also for the needs of other people.
We should not think only of ourselves but also of others.
You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God (2 Corinthians 9:11).
