Invest in Others
How did you feel when a friend, teacher, minister or coach gave to you financially or took time to nurture and flourish you? Chances are you cherished those moments and still think of those encounters today.
Investing in others is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling decisions you will make in your lifetime.
Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
– Romans 13:8 ESV
When it comes to investing and inspiring others, putting your time, resources and energy into causes and people that matter, you will find a more profound sense of purpose and fulfillment in your life. When you seek to invest and encourage others, the Holy Spirit will guide you to the people and organizations needing help, and He will lead you in what He wants you to give. God has given you many resources for you to share and inspire others.
Investing is not just about writing a check; it’s about being fully engaged in the process, sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading and observant of what others need. It’s about being a part of something much bigger than yourself and realizing it’s a “God calling,” especially when it involves those who share your values and passions.
Your sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s guidance allows you to become a part of something bigger than you can imagine.
When you invest in others, you are not just making a difference in other lives, you are also challenging yourself to grow by increasing your faith, being the best version of yourself and living a more meaningful life. Inspiration comes from living a life of love and obedience to God.
By following the Holy Spirit’s guidance to invest in others, you make a difference in the world and for the kingdom of God, discover a sense of intention and live a life of significance. Investing in others is powerful.
Today’s One Thing
In your quiet time, ask the Lord to give you the names of the individuals in whom He wants you to invest. After you journal these names, ask Him how He wants you to contribute. This could mean a phone call, text, dinner or a financial gift. Be obedient to the Lord’s direction.
