More Blessed to Give than to Receive

Acts 20:35

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. Many people of the world are often thinking about what they will get in return and only give when there is something in it for themselves. But children of God who strive to be Christlike give without expecting to receive anything in return for they know their reward is in heaven because when you give in a right spirit it truly is an act of worship and pleases the Lord. When we give to the weak and those in need, we are spreading God’s love and hope into the hearts of those who receive the gift. Let’s not forget that God gives to us so that we may be generous to others. This Christmas let’s focus on giving rather than receiving.
