More Blessed to Give

1 12-7 1 Acts 20 35.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Acts 20:35

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

 

God has given us more than we could ever deserve and we should follow his example of giving. When we give to the weak we are spreading God’s love and hope into the hearts of those who receive the gift. When you give in a right spirit it truly is an act of worship and pleases the Lord. Let’s not forget that God gives to us so that we may be generous to others.  This Christmas lets focus on giving rather than receiving.

Don’t say to your neighbor, “Go and come back; I’ll give it to you tomorrow,” when you have it.
