GIVERS SHOULD HAVE LIMITS.

*GIVERS SHOULD HAVE LIMITS*
✍️
First, giving is one quality we must all strive to have. *However,as you give, know who is gaining*.
✍️
Now look at this conversation between Jesus and a Canaanite woman.”Son of David… have mercy on me sir! My daughter has a demon and is in terrible condition”-she said.

“I have been sent only to the lost sheep of the people of Isreal” and the rest is history. Mathew 15v21-24

✍️
Gain clarity: *givers should have limit because takers do not have limit*. Anything you feed grows. If you bring out any amount of money or whatever to share, you will always see people who will be taking it from you and they’ll never cease to be available.
✍️
Do not be sentimental in protecting what value you have,it is not meant for everyone. When you see those that need it, you will know.
✍️
Once you sleep, your weapon will be taken away by the enemy. This time, the hunter will become the hunted.
✍️
In the light of the above therefore,in your giving, apply prudence, know who is gaining from your value. This is necessary, else, it’s tantamount to waste.

*Do not give up as long as you have something to give*
