Acts 20: 35 “…‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
How many of us really believe this? Then, why don’t we give often to those around us? Are we more excited to receive a surprise gift from someone than give one?
The answer tells us quite a bit about ourselves. I do believe that God wants us both happy and grateful when we receive a gift. However, when we give, ask the Lord for the grace to show “agape” love, a love that is unconditional.
Lord, teach me to be a more gracious giver and to love unconditionally. I praise you for your infinite gifts and unconditional love for me.
What gifts and talents do you have to offer others that demonstrate your love for them, thereby sharing the love of Christ?
