Reminder: It Is More Blessed To Give Than Receive

it is more blessed to give than receive

Philippians has ever been ane of my favorite books of the Bible as well as I cause got ever had a exceptional fondness towards the fourth chapter. It is ane of the most joyous books inward the Bible inward improver to level though nosotros mightiness expect that it was written during wonderfully joyous circumstances, it was truly written spell Paul was inwards prison house theatre. Add to that the fact that Paul was imprisoned unjustly every bit good that  a Roman prison dwelling position would brand an American prison house confront similar a ground social guild, too you lot it proves that at that spot must keep been something to what he was writing.

Anyway, in Philippians 4:17 [AMP] Paul says this to the Philippian church building

“Not that I seek or am eager for [your] gift, but I do seek and am eager for the fruit which increases to your credit [the harvest of approving that is accumulating to your line of piece of work organisation relationship]”

When reading this verse yesterday, I was reminded of the approval that comes from giving. It is a wonderful matter to range out of acre of written written report and obedience, but sometimes nosotros demand to alive on reminded that at that spot is a blessing that comes every bit a outcome of our giving!

It is amend to overstep on than to receive!

Apparently Paul learned this from Jesus

“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 laissez passer on than to receive.‘” Acts xx:35

And I dear how the Amplified version adds a fiddling to a greater extent especial almost what it way to go blessed…

“It is more than blessed (makes i happier together amongst more than to live on envied) to paw than to receive.”

Maybe I just needed a picayune encouragement in this area, but I was blessed by this reminder that God has a “blessing account” for us that is accumulating as we give!
