Giving & Receiving

We say “we’re blessed” when we receive something. In fact, we’re MORE blessed when we give. Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35). This principle holds for individuals, organizations, businesses, and nations. To constantly receive and not give is to be selfish and impoverished. It’s why the Dead Sea is dead while the Jordan River is alive. “True generosity doesn’t start when you have some thing to give, but rather when there’s nothing in you that’s trying to take” (Nipun Mehta). Sacrificial GIVING—of our time, money, knowledge, sympathy, friendship, kindness, forgiveness, etc.—brings us a greater blessing than what we receive (Proverbs 11: 24-26; Psalm 41:1-3). Give selflessly and generously!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
