More blessed to Give!
Posted on Monday April 15, 2013
Cornelius was a giver. Jesus said it is more blessed to give than to receive. How many times have we heard this, and what have we made of it?
Because of Cornelius' prayers and alms-giving, God, Personally, invited him to eternal life. He was not a Christian, but did what is Christ-like, even though he did not know Jesus Christ. But, for you who know Christ, how do you relate with His advice to be a giver?
Giving and sharing was so much in Cornelius' DNA that when it was time to receive the Word of life, he invited family and friends to share with him what God was about to give to him, generously!
How many Christians give opportunities to others to receive from God? How many even share the Word -which is free and not even owned by you? How many evangelize? How many give? Are you one of those who do? If not, it's not too late to start today. It's commended and loved by God. Do not sell yourself short.
