the daily Starr thirsty thursday it is better to give than to receive

In a world when we see, hear and practically breathe GET GET GET…

God reminds us of this important truth.

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, β€˜It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ (Acts 20:35 ESV)

It’s unnatural.
It goes against our human nature.
We want more more more.
We get caught up in what matters most to me.

And somewhere in the midst of deep dissatisfaction and a thirst that can never be fully quenched – we find Jesus.

We see how He lived.
We see how He served.
We see how He challenged everything we’ve ever known.

We finally give His instructions a try, and then we get it.

We truly come alive when we give.

We realize that giving is so much more than receiving.

And it becomes addictive to get that feeling you only get when you give.

Because as my dad always says, “You can’t out-give God!”

God, on this #thirstythursday help me to give in ways I’ve never given and find You in letting go of me me me and more more more.
