” There is more happiness in giving than to receive. ” Acts 20:35
This is a saying of Jesus in his teaching. This is an act of love for Christians as Jesus said, ” It is more blessed to give than to receive. ” Human nature prefers to receive than to give. But if we want to be more like Jesus, let us start to learn from him a life of giving. Jesus as our savior gave even his own life.
As Jesus sat down near the temple treasury, a poor widow came along and dropped in two little copper coins, worth about a penny. She gave just very little. Yet Jesus said to his disciples, the poor widow put more in the offering box than all the others. For the others put in what they had to spare of their riches, but, the poor widow, poor as she is, put in all she had – she gave all she had to live on. This poor widow, without name recorded in the Bible gave very little, but ” All ” she had was noticed by Jesus for her act of giving. She was taken as a great person for ever to be remembered and recognized as gracious for the lesson on, ” It is more blessed to give than to receive. ” Abundant life.
Give God your heart and He will give you his strength.
