WHY DO WE SHARE...

WHY DO WE SHARE AND HELP OUR SIMILAR MEANWHILE GOD DOES NOT TAKE THIS GOOD DEED INTO ACCOUNT?

 

                                  It is the 237th message.

       The action that we make by sharing or by helping people is certainly good, but God does not take this good deed into account because we do not do it for his glory, but we do it for the glory of man in us. For, the sharing or the help which God does not take into account or does not take pleasure is; after we have helped somebody, we start saying to everybody that: “if you saw him eating yesterday, it is thanks to me because if I have not given him, he would have die of hunger, I am the one who gave him the clothes and the shoes that he is wearing, did he have other ones?” Or, when somebody comes to ask for a help, you tell him: “You do not have the grace because what I had, I have given it to such person who has just gone, for he or she was siting on this or that chair”.

       Instead to simply say to the person: “I do not have for if I had, I would have given you”. There is also the fact that when we want to make a gift, especially in the prisons, in hospitals and orphanages, we call the medias (radio, television, press, internet) so that they should film this scene and put it at the disposition of the entire world. It can also be the case when you pay the studies of somebody, when you give him money for a competitive examination or when you have intervene (by the relation) so that he should work; you start singing everywhere that it is thanks to you that this person is what he is today. You start saying that this person was nothing, and that it is thanks to you that he became somebody. You will start talking of his good deeds everywhere like a good morning or a salutation.


       It is also the same today for those who give the offering to God and they start saying: “I have given such an amount, I am the one who has greatly participated or who bought all what you see in the church”. For, we give and help to later sing and speak a lot of this good deed. Unfortunately, this good deed is not received in front God because he knows that the man does not do it for his glory (he glory of God), but he does it for his own glory near the men. That is in fact the sharing or the help which God does not take into consideration.


       But if we want that our share or help should be taken into consideration by God, we should not brag in front of our similar after doing something good; for if we do it, it means that we are looking for the glory of man. If we share in secret, God will see it, he will take note of this and he will also give us in secret; for sharing in secret is to seek the glory of God. That is why the Lord Jesus says: “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. 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. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you” (Matthew 6/2-4) When we share or help our similar, we should not wait for thanks giving or a reward from him. For, we must give and help for God and not for the man.


       Giving something to somebody in secret is giving to God. Having the thought of sharing even when we do not have is something that God takes into consideration. When we share or help our similar, we should leave that he should be the one to talk of the good deed that God has manifested for him through us; for it is not us to glorify to have done it. The same, in this world, when the man possesses food, he will not give it to his similar who is in need for fear that he will not give him something in return. For, even when he has a little, he does not give to the one who lacks completely, but he prefers to give to the one who has more than him. That is why when he pays the transport to go and share this food with that one who has more, he will wait a big reward in return which will be superior to what he brings. And when this last, due to smugness neglects him by not giving him honours for his presence, or by giving him just the money of transport that he has spent, he will start saying in him: “seeing the pain that I had to bring him this food, he did not only take pleasure of my visit, but in addition to that, he just gives me money of transport that can permit me to arrive in my home”.Finally, when this one is victim of this injustice, he will finish by saying: “the rich men always know how to despise the people”.

       You have thus played the tombola and you have lost. Know that we must give more to those who are lacking and who have nothing to give us in return; for only God will give us back because we give for him. That is why the Lord Jesus was saying to the one who invited him: “When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbours, lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid. But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just” (Luke 14/12-14). We should be very careful because God does not take into consideration the help that we bring to the others because we do it badly, which means we seek the glory of man and not the glory of God.


       Be careful! The malediction is neither a test nor a persecution, but only the recovery of the view and the understanding will help the blinds and the deaf to become great in the spirit of God and his work, and not in the spirit of the man and his work.


       To God only by Jesus Christ love and pity for the deliverance and the life of men’s souls for the eternity.

CHAMPI Apostle not behalf of man, nor by a man but by Jesus Christ and God the Father. God’s power is the knowledge. To know, avoid sin and to be free from the eternal death. (John 8/32)
