During the lifetime of every individual on earth, there comes a time to make a decision about life. Some determine that they are in this race for themselves and chose to remain isolated from the world. Live and let live is a motto that allows people to justify a secure lifestyle. That philosophy works until their sphere of existence has a need. The need may arise when they require a new kidney or liver after cancer is discovered in their body. The awakening occurs when that discovery leads to a need to receive a new organ in order to continue living. Suddenly there is an awakening that there was also an opportunity for them to share life with others. It may be too late for some to give but we have an opportunity to make the gift of life now.
2 Corinthians 9:6 is very explicit. “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each person should give what they have decided in their heart to give….. for God loves a cheerful giver. “
Some cannot give money but they can give life and continue to live. If you would like to step outside your comfort zone and truly share your life with others, check out Transplant Village.
