Fridays Devotional


Good Morning Everyone,

Let's look at Acts 20:35

"It is more blessed to give than to receive."

Too often we forget that it is a blessing to be able to give. If we were as eager to do things for others as we are to receive favors, we would better understand the words of Jesus, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." A spring of water continually gives, while a pool continually receives. That is why the spring is always fresh, while the pool becomes stagnant and filled with refuse. If we knew the blessing of giving, there would be no need for drives, schemes, rummage sales, car washes, entertainments, and circuses to support church work. The poor preacher would not need to plead and urge and beg to keep things going. A giving church cannot die, but when a people stop giving, the church dies—spiritually as well as materially.

After a minister had earnestly pled for the cause of missions, a stingy old deacon complained, "All this giving will kill the church." The pastor replied, "Take me to one church which died from giving and I will leap upon its grave and shout to high heaven, ‘Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord!’ "

Bro. Paul
