Life transforming Scripture: “It is more blessed to give than to receive” [Acts 20:35].
When I was in the process of coming to faith, I began to read Scripture in a new way, believing that truth comes from every page.
If I found a verse that I could put into practice to test it and see if it indeed is true, I would try it out to find out if it worked.
This was one of the first scriptures I put to the test.
I always enjoyed receiving, but as I began to test the truthfulness of this word, I found it to be true: We are happier through our giving than through receiving.
Try it! Plan a gift for someone, then compare that to the next time you receive something, and see which “joy” lasts longer and is more satisfying.
