More Blessed? 1/31/16
Acts 20:35 (KJV)
35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
IT IS MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE!"
Jesus also said:
Luke 6:38 (KJV)
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
And YES, you are safe to continue to read today's message!
This is NOT an appeal for money for me OR this ministry!
I simply echo the FACT and the TRUTH in the above Scriptures-
It IS "more BLESSED to give than to receive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
I HAVE been on the other side-the RECEIVING side-and I am sure I will always be in need of someone's help and support.
1 Corinthians 10:12 (KJV)
12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
Everybody ALWAYS needs somebody:
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (KJV)
9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?
12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
The age-old question remains true-
Would YOU rather be the one who has FALLEN or the one who "lift up his fellow??"
Romans 15:1 (KJV)
1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
MONEY is NOT the problem-The LOVE of money IS:
1 Timothy 6:10 (KJV)
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Jesus also correctly stated:
Mark 10:23 (KJV)
23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
How TRUE this is:
Ecclesiastes 5:10-11 (KJV)
10 He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.
11 When goods increase, they are increased that eat them: and what good is there to the owners thereof, saving the beholding of them with their eyes?
Jesus warned US about "treasures ON earth"-
Matthew 6:19-21 (KJV)
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
How many of US well know "that if you got something nice, somebody wants it!!??"
TODAY, if you are able to be a GIVER-ESPECIALLY to "THINE OWN FLESH"-
SO LET HIM GIVE; NOT GRUDGINGLY, OR OF NECESSITY-
FOR GOD LOVETH A CHEERFUL GIVER!!!"
Isaiah 58:7 (KJV)
not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
2 Corinthians 9:7 (KJV)
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart,
so let him give
; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
GOD BLESS YOU!
