Good Morning, Mighty Woman of God!

I thank the Lord for each of you daily.  My prayer for you is that you are growing in the ministry and have been and will continue to be blessed and highly favored of the Lord Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 26:14-16), Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver. And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
Jesus had twelve disciples that journeyed with him throughout the land.  They observed Him pray for people and stood and watched miracles happen right before their very eyes.  There was not doubt in their mind that Jesus of Nazareth was the Messiah.  They knew that Jesus Christ was the Son of the Living God.  They were in the boat when a tremendous storm was about to overtake the boat and drown them.  They saw and heard Jesus speak to the sea, "peace be still".  "What kind of man is this that even the sea obeys Him, was the question they asked themselves.
Judas was among one of the twelve disciples that Jesus had with him on a daily basis.  So the question is, what would make a man that has seen so many miracles performed by Christ betray him?  One simple answer, GREED!  A spirit of greed will make you do things that you would have never thought was in your character.  For some reason, we always want more.  We tend to want more than we need and don't even think about giving to someone else in fear that we will not replace what we have given away.
The point that I am trying to get to today is that some of us have items stored away in our possession that we no longer want or need.  Instead of donating them to a charity, we just keep pushing the items back further in the closest.  You have grown two sizes and you are waiting to be able to fit those clothes again so you will not donate them to people that have nothing.  You have items stored in the basement and you won't give them away in fear that you will need them in five years.  Don't you understand that your blessings come from giving?  The bible says, "give and it shall be given unto you".  If you give away two suits, the Lord will give you four more. 
There are women in homeless or abuse shelters that have left their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs.  Their children had to leave their toys and clothes.  When they are in the process of gaining their lives back, they need clothes to go on interviews and items to start living in a new apartment.  Just think about that for a moment.
Cain killed his brother Abel because of greed.  Abel didn't have as much, but he gave his best, therefore God accepted his gift and not Cain's.  God knew that Cain had more, but Cain didn't want to give his best.  Judas betrayed Jesus Christ for thirty pieces of silver that he didn't get a chance to spend.  He committed suicide because he couldn't live with what he had done.
My challenge for you today is to look around your house and take inventory. Be honest with yourself about the items that you know you don't or won't wear again. Take a look at pots and pans that you could donate. Also, never give anybody something that you wouldn't want for yourself. What good is it to give away something that is torn or broken, if you do that you have done nothing. When you give something away to be a blessing it should be your best.  You will never know when you will be at a point in your life when you are in need.  Amen!
