There is no other thing God loves more than man and that is why He demonstrated how true love should be expressed “for God so love the world that He gave…”[John 3:16] Therefore, we should so love His people that we give unto them whenever we are opportuned to. No matter how poor you are, there is always something you can give to help. Just as you expect someone richer to give you a car, a poorer being is also looking up to you for that one dollar that would sustain him to the next day. No wonder the scriptures said, “if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who will give you your own?”[Luke 16:12] Mr Job had this secret inside Of him and it worked for him- “I delivered the poor that cried, the fatherless and him that had none to help…I caused thie widows heart to sing…I was eye to the blind and feet to the lame…”[Job 29:12-17] And just because he did all of this, he was rewarded greatly-” I shall not die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand. My root shall spread out by the waters…my glory was fresh in me and my bow was renewed in my hand. Unto me men gave ear, waited and kept silence at my counsel. After my words, they spake not again…”[Job 29:18-25]
The scriptures also went on to say, “he that giveth unto the poor shall not lack”[Proverbs 28:27].
If you’re just here to consume, you might end ur being consumed

The best way of expressing love is giving. “If a man say I love God and hateth his brother, he is a liar”[1 John 4:20]. Until you start seeing yourself as a channel of blessing to others, God is not committed to blessing you hence the scriptures said,” he that hath pity on the poor, lendeth unto God, and that which he hath given will He repay him again”[Proverbs 19:17].
God bless you as you.
