More than likely you expect us to say something like “it’s better to give than to receive.” But if we honestly look at it as God would have us, it’s better to give WHAT we receive. God owns everything. He created the Earth and everything in it, including us and everything we have (Genesis chapter 1).
God trusts us with many things – our skills, finances, opportunities, possessions – and then, He asks that we give back only a small chunk to Him showing we trust Him. It is through this commitment that we get more people reached and adventures found, more families healed, and many more lives to be changed.
With Him, there is as much receiving as there is giving. And we are thankful for the resources with which we are trusted through His faithfulness to each of us.
“God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.” II Corinthians 9:8
