Seeking to embrace this more fully in my life...

Abundance isn't God's provision for me to live in luxury.  It's his provision for me to help others live...Why does God give some of his children more than they need and others less than they need?  He does it to teach his children to help each other.  God distributes wealth unevenly, not because he loves some of his children more than others, but so his children can distribute it to their brothers and sisters on his behalf.  He doesn't want us to have too little or too much (Proverbs 30 :8-9).  When those with too much give to those with too little, two problems are solved.  When they don't, two problems are perpetuated.

What a beautiful gift you have given your children-the TRUE gift of wealth and riches. The beauty of loving and serving others!!

Greetings, I just stubbled on to your blog from anothers and I'm so glad I did. What a blessing to be helping others with surgeries and having a heart for those in need. I went to India and it was what got me rolling on adoption. I really wanted to just sell everything, pack up and go back to India with my family in tote. I have a blog too and I'm not an everyday writer but I need to connect with other adopters more than anything. Blessing Cindy
