I have coveted no ones’s silver or gold or clothes. You yourselves know that these hands ministered to my own needs and to the men who were with me. In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak, and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive."
May we follow Paul’s example of hard work to provide for the needs of himself and the needs of others. How different our nation would be right now if we followed these principles and truly believed it is more blessed to give than to receive. It is a simple truth in God’s Word that could have profound results on individual lives as well as society. May we continue to give out of little as we did when there was an abundance. Let us offer as our motives a form of worship to the One Who gave His all.
In His love.
