Hear me correctly. I’m not saying give more just to get more. It doesn’t work that way because that’s not true reciprocity; that’s just plain selfishness.
Reciprocity is giving to others just because you have it in your power—and in your heart—to give, and it will “bounce back” to you.
Reciprocity is from your heart. God makes sure you get the return blessings.
And, by the way, if you have something you could give but you don’t give it, your “bounce back” becomes a world that is smaller and smaller, with greater scarcity.
Reciprocity is win-win. Selfishness is lose-lose.
When you’re kind to others, you help yourself; when you are cruel to others, you hurt yourself. (Proverbs 11:17)
The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller. (Proverbs 11:24)
The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped. (Proverbs 11:25)
