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.’” Acts 20:35
Jesus received the gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh to celebrate His birth. For 33 years he gave honor to His earthly parents, sight to the blind, healing to the sick, bread for the hungry and living water to the thirsty.
The week before He was betrayed Jesus received one more gift when Mary anointed His head and feet with perfumed oil to prepare for His death. When she was criticized, Jesus defended her and told us to always remember her act of giving. Then last of all He gave His life for ours. Now that’s a life of blessing! That’s a life of giving!
