Cheerful Giver, Happy Receiver

by | Oct 10, 2022 | Blessings, Giving, Receiving

“Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

(Luke 6:38 ESV)

“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”

(James 1:17 ESV)

Have you ever had someone give you something and you tried not to take it even though you needed it? So have I. There have been times that people have helped me or given me something and I tried to graciously refuse. I need to stop that.  God loves a cheerful giver but e also loves a gracious receiver. By letting someone give you something, not only are you being blessed but God is able to bless them too.

I have been told not to block someone’s blessing several times. Sometimes it’s hard. But I am learning. We all need to be sensitive to others needs and be a cheerful giver. But on the other hand, we also need to be a cheerful receiver. When someone does something to help us, take it graciously and thankfully. Don’t be the reason someone misses out on a blessing. Be the reason they are blessed beyond measure.

Have a blessed day.
