Where are Our Hearts?

The concept is out there that you must pay for what you get to show you invest in yourself. Then why would I get so many free opportunities lately?

In a book of scripture it says "And again, I say unto the poor, ye who have not and yet have sufficient, that ye remain from day to day; I mean all you who deny the beggar, because ye have not; I would that ye say in your hearts that: I give not because I have not, but if I had I would give." (Mosiah 24:4)

I think a key concept for why I have been so blessed comes from this verse. "I give not because I have not, but if I had I would give." It's in my heart to give. I would love to invest in myself! Which in turn would invest in you.

It seems to be a similar concept to when the Savior mentioned. "And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (Matthew 19:24) I recently heard that the eye of the needle referred to a small gate into the city. The camel would have to be stripped of baggage and crawl through on his knees. In other words be humbled.

It's all about where our hearts are. Are we humble? Would we give if we could?
