Moving Day

If you have ever experienced the process of moving from one place to another, you discover in the packing process things that you had forgotten that you still possess. You also realize that many things that you are still keeping with you are no longer needed and are tossed into the trash. Others may have a moving sale. There may be things that still have value and are donated or given away so that others may benefit from them.

Ministry can be that way too. Sometimes in the dance realm, we are storing things inside that we need to get rid of. Past hurts, disappointments and missed opportunities must be released for you to make your move. If you have a wealth of knowledge or information, it is a blessing to share it. Are there churches in your community that would love to have a workshop or fellowship? Some may feel the need to "sell" the information that they have obtained in books, conferences, and DVDs.

The point is that we all must release some things in order to keep moving forward. If we never shed our extra possessions, then we will find ourselves unable to move. There is no fear in letting go and sharing what you have. We are blessed to be a blessing.

Matthew 5:42 (NKJV)
"Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away."

Luke 6:30 (NKJV)
"Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back."
