"In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus himself who said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'" Acts 20:35 (NIV)
There's no denying the blessing of giving. But what's the blessing exactly?
Is it that warm, fuzzy feeling we get when sharing with somebody in need? Is it the spiritual reward that we hope registers in heaven as a result? Or is it the thrilling possibility that whatever we give will be paid back to us in spades?
- Just how is blessing realized through giving?
- Who gets it?
- What does it look like?
My hunch is that answers to this question are wide-ranging! It would be interesting to get some healthy discussion going!
Don't be shy! What do YOU say the blessing is from giving?
