IT'S MORE BLESSED TO GIVE, Acts 20:35

JESUS SAID...."It is more blessed to give than to receive" ACTS 20:35

Everything in the world is not equal or neutral. There is good and bad; there is right and wrong. When it comes to giving and receiving, one is better than the other.

It's true there must be a receiver for every giver. Jesus would have no mission to give salvation if there weren't so many in need. Blessed is everyone who 'received' Jesus, because "to them He gave the right to become children of God", JOHN 1:12. And as men become children of God, remember the importance of the words, "freely you received, freely give", MATTHEW 10:8. The wear are blessed to receive, but there is a greater blessing to those who are the givers of blessings. It is then that we are the most like God.

The world is filled with unfortunate, burdened, and weary souls who need a little light of Jesus shown on them. The followers of Jesus are going to be the blessing in their lives.

The natural state of man as God designed is to be blessed and a blessing to others. The one who is forgiven becomes a forgiver of others. The one who is shown kindness by God learns to show kindness to his brothers. Christians learn to treat others they way they were treated by God with patience and forgiveness.

Today do the more blessed thing. Said with love, Dan Mayfield
