It is more honorable to give than to receive. For it is in giving that you receive. Give the love you want to receive; give the kindness you want to feel; give all the things you want to come to you. Give and give more, without desiring anything in return. For the measure you give, is the measure you will receive. Adopt this attitude and apply it to your everyday life, with the mentality that you will receive everything you give. Open up your heart and give freely, so that you can freely receive everything that’s truly meant for you. But when you hold back, you are only depriving yourself of your own benefits. Adopt these outstanding qualities listed below and apply them to your everyday life.
Take a look at four (4) outstanding qualities you need to adopt;
1. Give love.
We all need love. We need love to grow, to heal, to save, and so many amazing others. The world will be a much better place when we give more love. Not everyone is as privileged as you are, to have shelter, food and clothing. There are others who their circumstances have left them feeling lost and dejected; without hope. Reach out to the less privileged ones. Have empathy with them. Put a smile on their face by showing them all the love they have been deprived of. Give them something to eat, clothes to wear and maybe a place to stay. Do this knowing that you are actually changing someone’s life for the better. And as you do so, there will never be a time you will become homeless, without clothes to wear or run out of food to eat. Give more love.
2. Be humble.
Humility is the greatest Christian virtue. It puts you in the position to have empathy for others. You are able to identify with and understand another person’s feelings and difficulties. You totally understand what it is like to be deprived of certain needs. It makes you appreciate what others may take for granted. Humility makes you want to reach out and help someone. A humble person is a generous giver; they give straight from their heart without restraint. They understand the principle of giving and receiving; that to freely receive, you need to freely give. Humility may seem like the lower position, but it is what will take you to your greatest peak. Be humble.
3. Be forgiving.
Forgiveness is the final form of love. If you truly love someone, you should be willing to forgive the person despite the wrong they did to you. It takes a strong person to completely forgive another, when they have been hurt badly. Most times, forgiving someone’s wrongs may seem like the hardest thing to do especially when they don’t acknowledge their mistakes. Be prompt to forgive. Let out all that pain and unnecessary feelings out of your system. For it deprives you of your own happiness and peace of mind. Always be willing to forgive.
4. Show gratitude.
The greatest source of happiness is the ability to be grateful at all times. Nothing is worth it if you aren’t happy. Your happiness is tied down to how grateful you are to the things of life. When you change your perspective and see life as a blessing for what it truly is, you will be more grateful for the past lessons and experiences that helped shape the way you now perceive situations. You will appreciate the gift of this very moment. And look forward to the future with so much enlightenment. Always be grateful, for it makes you and irresistible magnet to receive all that is meant for you by divine right.
