Miracle Monday: Giving

“The service we render to others is really the rent we pay for our room on this earth.

It is obvious that man is himself a traveler; that the purpose of this world is not ‘to have and to hold’ but ‘to give and serve.”
~Sir Wilfred T. Grinfell

It is a miracle to give, give thanks this Monday.  There are so many who need the service of kindness that you give at this moment, right now.  The gift of giving may mean that you are not recognized, what a bounty that is. It may mean that the person you serve by giving out of love never says” thank you,” but give without receipt anyway.  Give, make a miracle in someone else’s life – pay your rent.

Abdu’l-Baha adds “Faith is the magnet which draws the confirmation of the Merciful One. Service is the magnet which attracts the heavenly strength.” Giving and service strengthens our capacity; it magnetizes our ability to attract miracles. Therefore, give freely. It is a law of the universe that the flow of giving circulates a continuous flow of energy.  Dynamic exchange and interchange stimulates the current of return since nothing is static.

Giving prompts receiving and receiving prompts giving – that is pure reciprocity.  Give a smile, give a simple prayer, give praise, give a hug, give financial support. Regardless of the pivot, giving with compassion is a blessing to someone. Transform your life by opening your heart to give and receive with gracious gratitude.

Give without remembering and accept gifts without forgetting. Make a miracles yours by giving and serving someone else today.
