In your opinion, which one is it?

Today’s our podcast name is: In your opinion, which one is it.

I’m reading scripture first and then I want to discuss it and ask, please contact us through our website with your opinion on this topic and scripture.

Act 20:35  In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” 

I’m going to give you two scenarios.

One.

You have a family member who are well into their 80’s or 90’s of age. This family member come to visit you and you feel it in your heart to bless them with a small gift, to show them that you love them. You know that this family member have been retired for many years already and you remember how this family member used to gift you as a child. Nowadays they don’t anymore but you understand why because they do not have that much anymore due to retirement and they are old. It’s now your turn to gift them, to love them and you feel blessed that you still can because they are still present in your life.

Scenario number two.

You are able to give to others, those who are in need and those who are in your family and friends circle. The reason why you are able to give to others, is because you are financially well off. God is blessing you with enough and thus you can give.

This is the two scenarios.

My question to you today is:

Are we more blessed to give because we have enough financially or are we more blessed to give because we can give to those who are still present in our lives?

I’ve discussed this question with my family two days ago and my husband says that he feels that this scripture applies to both of these two scenarios. I agree with him. We are more blessed to give (than to receive) when we have enough to be able to give and when those people we give to, are still present and we can still enjoy their company.

But I want you to take today’s scripture, read it by yourself and meditate about it. If you want, drop us an email through our website which is in the description of the podcast. But if not, think about what this scripture means to you and whether you agree with us or not.

I’m ending this podcast with the scripture again:

Act 20:35  In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
