“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” -Jesus
This is one of the few places where there are “red letters” outside of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. In other words, it must be important!
So important that Jesus talked about money more than any other topic except God’s Kingdom.
“You cannot serve both God and money.” -Jesus
Giving re-aligns us. It is an opportunity to re-align our hearts and minds away from materialism, or gluttony, or a false prosperity gospel, and toward God. And when our hearts and minds are aligned toward God, they also begin to resemble God.
What did God give? His one and only Son, Jesus.
It is a blessing to give.
And this is a lesson you can only learn by doing.
