“Yet to all who did receive him,

to those who believed in his name,

he gave the right to become children of God—

children born not of natural descent,

nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.”

John 1:12-13 NIV


Give it All Away!

August 14, 2011

We have heard that it is more blessed to give than to receive.  Is it?  Do you think so?  The NIV Bible has over 1400 references to giving yet only 255 which speak of receiving.  This alone tells us of the importance God places on giving.  I am not looking to speak of giving in general though.  I want to speak about giving love.  You see, I used to feel unlovable and unloved.  I pasted on a smile and went about life and lived pretty well.  Something was missing.  I am not that person anymore.  Along the path of my pretty good life, I left familiar behind and seeked a total change of life and not only found a new state, a new home, and a new series of challenges, I also found a new heart.  I also found God’s amazing love. Know what?  If I keep it to myself, it seems to get to a point where my heart doesn’t feel so good.  I have to give it away.  Amazingly enough when I open myself up . . . when I risk stepping outside of my comfort zone . . . risk getting hurt or rejected and give love to others, it feels great and I find my heart filling up with love in return.  Try it!  Give your love away!  You will be amazed at how quickly the Lord your God fills you up again!
