It Is More Blessed To Give

Acts 20:17-35

While Paul was giving his last instruction to the Elders of the Ephesian church about how to shepherd the flock of God, the church, he told them to support the weak and to remember the word of Jesus that “it is more blessed to give than to receive” (v. 35). These words are nowhere recorded by the evangelists, but the evangelists did not pretend to record all his sayings and instructions. But knowing the lifestyle of Jesus, giving at every opportunity to the extent of giving His life, to Him it is a higher privilege to give and the giver is more blessed or happy than the receiver. When you give, it is an opportunity for you to be blessed both by God and by men.

Point of Emphasis:         Giving always attracts blessing and honour.

Prayer Point:                  Lord, lift me to the level of becoming a perpetual giver.

IL Y A PLUS DE BENEDICTION A DONNER

ACTES 20 :17-35

Quand Paul donnait sa dernière instruction aux anciens de l’église d’Ephèse à savoir comment diriger le troupeau de Dieu, l’église, il leur dit de soutenir ceux qui sont faibles et de se rappeler les paroles de Jésus qu’ « il y a plus de bonheur à donner qu’à recevoir » (v.35). Ces paroles ne sont nulle part rapportées par les évangélistes mais ceux-ci n’ont pas feint de rapporter tous ses dires et ses instructions. Mais sachant le style de vie de Jésus, de donner à chaque occasion jusqu’à donner même sa vie, c’est un grand privilège pour lui de donner et celui qui donne est plus béni et plus content que celui qui reçoit. Quand tu donnes, c’est une occasion pour toi d’être béni à la fois par Dieu et par les hommes.

Point essentiel : Donner attire la bénédiction et l’honneur.

Axe de prière : Seigneur, élève-moi au point de devenir un donateur inlassable.
