Acts 20:35 (Paul said) And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. Your should remember the words for the Lord Jesus: "It is more blessed to give then to receive."
We live in such a ME world today that it is so easy to get lost in the things we want and the things we think we need.... but when we open our eyes we don't have to look very far at all to find someone else in need... I have read more that once if we need something the best thing in the world to do is find someone else that is in need and help them.... If we do this one of two things will happen either God will bless us for helping another person even in our own time of need or we will find out that what we thought we needed wasn't such a need after all. God blesses us when we give... we can choose the "blessing" of the world by grabbing at everything we can get our hands on or we can receive God's blessings by going out and finding ways to do for others. One of God's blessing is providing us with all our needs... and God also gives us peace that passes all understanding... when we do for others we are storing up God's grace, and God's favor. Is there anything better to invest our time or our money in??
