THE BLESSED

They always say that givers never lack. This is true only and only if you are doing the right thing. The right thing is giving and not disposing.

Therefore the question goes thus; are you giving or disposing?
Most people think they are giving when what they do in the real sense is disposing.
They disposed them because they are no longer in good shape or no longer best of its kind.
When the bible talks about giving, it said “good measures will be giving to you” that's if you have giving good measures in the first place. This means that whatever we are giving should be in good shape and be best of its kind.

Cain's offering was rejected because it was not in good shape and not best of its kind.
But Abel's offering was accepted because it was the opposite of cain's offering

Also, when you give alms, its suppose to be done in secret and unannounced, just as the bible says in mattew 6:2-4 that

“So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you”

In summary, since its the giver that gets things in return, we can conclusively say that the blessed is he who gives just as its been said that

“blessed is the hand that giveth than the one that taketh”

Anything that you want to see increase, give such out generously and you be blessed abundantly. This is the nature of life.
