“It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35). The words of Jesus, quoted in the book of Acts, are some of the most famous in the Bible. They celebrate the goodness and blessing of generosity. But, we need to remember during this Thanksgiving season that the Christian virtue of generosity first involves receiving. You can’t give what you don’t have. We might also need to be reminded that both receiving and giving can be corrupted.

This week’s message about Christian Generosity reminds us that we are to gratefully receive in order to generously give. This frees us to gladly receive more in the future. Our hope is ultimately in God, not in our wealth. What we take hold of is not the fleeting pleasures of this life, but the eternal pleasures of the life to come.
