Many today are in the pursuit of making a living and seldom take time to make a life. I once read the following statement in a book entitled, “God’s Little Devotional Book” – “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” Jesus said, it is more blessed to give than to receive (Acts 20:35).
Points to ponder:
Are you making a living or making a life? In other words, are you getting or giving? Giving is the expression of love. God so LOVED the world, that he GAVE his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16), who GAVE himself willingly for the salvation of our souls (John 10:17-18). Have you given your life to and for Jesus as he has given his life for you? It is more blessed to make a life for Jesus than to make a living for ourselves. Think about it.
Acts 20:35 (KJV)
35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
