“It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
It is blessed to receive
God has given us so many wonderful things. It is not a bad thing to receive those things. In fact, it is a good thing. Also, we can receive things from other people as well. Japanese people have a culture where refusing gifts is a good thing, and it is challenging to allow yourself to just take things as they are. However, it is very important that we learn to be able to receive.
But it is more blessed to give
Jesus encourages us to give, especially to those in need. When we do give, God rejoices. And maybe it is in ways that are not so visible, but God rewards us for those actions. Let’s experience the blessing of giving!
