"Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full--pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back." - Jesus of Nazareth. (Luke6:38, NLT)

"Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity.” - Jesus of Nazareth (Luke6:38, The Message Bible)

The secret of Success and greatness have always been the pursuit and the unending quest of man  from all ages. However, It is that which isn't enshrouded in mystery after all. It has always been with us and within our grasps, but so often, we fail to always realize the obvious and embark on an endless pursuit . What is the secret of Greatness and Living.. This is the subject today

Make Giving your obsession. You have never really began to live until you have began to  give. Giving is the greatest form  of living. The greatest men who walked this planet gave the greatest gift to the world.
The richest King in History, King Solomon was known for sharing his great wealth of wisdom, proverbs and songs with the world, Jesus of Nazareth gave the greatest gift of His own life to the world. Mother Theresa's name was inscribed on the pages of history because of her giving, she gave her love and material gifts to the poor people  of Calcutta, Mahatma Gandhi gave the gifts of leadership,freedom and values which can not be easily quantified to the people of India, Nelson Mandela gave the gifts of Forgiveness, inspirational leadership and his greatness to the whole world, the pages of history are filled with names of great people who have left their names on the sands of time because of their giving.
Becoming a giver is a great rule that has been practiced by great leaders, top influencers and the world's greatest brands. Bill Gates through Microsoft gave the world  the gift of a wonderful product- Windows operating system, Steve Jobs gave the world the gift of innovation through various Apple products, and the list is endless. Some of the world's  top billionaires like Warren Buffet have signed The Giving Pledge to share their wealth with charity, this simply amplifies their giving nature .
We all actually have been giving consciously or unconsciously  before now,but this is a call to raise your giving to an entirely new level. If you must achieve greatness. It is of great importance that you begin to give consciously,deliberately and generously.
We all have different things to give but we must give what we are already endowed with at a higher level of excellence.
We can all give a gift of a smile, kindness, a gift of our honest efforts, our gifts, time talents and in some cases our material gifts.
The one person who has nothing in the world still has something to give-the gift of gratitude and this opens the door to other things!
When you give more value you get more value in return. This is the secret of living a great life.
