Thought of the Day !!

“And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard.  You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
                                                Acts 20:35 (NLT)

It truly is more blessed to give than to receive.  I’ve found this out in my life many times.  What I’ve received has been great.  But when I give, it gives me an inner joy. 

Many will argue this because they’ve bought into the idea that the more you have the happier you will be.  The fact is, though, that we are created in the image of our Creator.  And the Creator is a giver.  God gave us breath.  He gave us His Son.  He gave us a way out of our sin.  He gives, gives, gives.  Yet we still believe that more joy comes out of getting for some reason.  If we were created in the image of the world…of sin…then this would be true.  But we’re created to be like Christ who is the ultimate giver.

If you think it’s better to receive, then you don’t know the true joy of giving from your heart out of the heart of Christ.

Be a giver today and see just how good it feels.

In the love of Christ,
