The Lord Provides and We Divide

Our neighbor down the road has a big garden. Proudly, at least once a week, she proclaims "The Lord provides and we divide"! And with those words we become the lucky recipients of fresh squash or corn or beans or cucumbers or whatever is in abundance from her garden on that day. In return, I share my meagar offering of cherry tomatoes or hot off the stove Squash Fritters. What a wonderful system!

Real life is like that. Those with abundance and blessings share with others. Maybe its just a kind word, a simple prayer, a smile to a passing stranger. Maybe, in this day and time, its a job lead or networking to connect people in need with people in the "know". The Lord provides and if we divide those blessings they will come back to us in multiples in ways we don't expect.

Look for ways to share. You will be blessed. Those with whom you share will be blessed. Be willing to accept from others. It's God's plan.
