Reminder: It Is More Blessed To Give Than Receive

it is more blessed to give than receive

Philippians has e'er been i of my favorite books of the Bible and I educate got e'er had a particular fondness towards the 4th chapter. It is i of the most joyous books inwards the Bible and level though nosotros powerfulness await that it was written during wonderfully joyous circumstances, it was genuinely written spell Paul was inward prison house. Add to that the fact that Paul was imprisoned unjustly every bit well every bit that  a Roman prison house would cook an American prison household facial aspect similar a tell social club, as well as y'all it proves that in that location must choose been something to what he was writing.

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

When reading this verse yesterday, I was reminded of the approbation that comes from giving. It is a wonderful affair to mitt out of bailiwick together with obedience, but sometimes we signal to alive reminded that at that location is a approbation that comes every fight a upshot of our giving!

It is improve to pass on than to choose!

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 to a greater extent than blessed to make than to receive.‘” Acts 20:35

And I dearest how the Amplified version adds a lilliputian to a greater extent than detail nearly what it means to travel blessed…

“It is more than than blessed (makes one happier too more than to be envied) to laissez passer than to have.”

Maybe I just needed a little 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!
