Selfish, self-centered people are the most unhappy unfulfilled people in the world. Jesus Christ said that it is more blessed to give than to receive. People always want something in return for their efforts, for what they give, but if we learn to obey the words of Jesus and to give unselfishly without expecting anything in return then we will be happy, fulfilled and blessed.
Jesus Christ came to give Himself as a ransom for those who were without hope, for those who were lost in the bondage of sin, destined to eternal damnation. He gave Himself freely. He came to serve, to give, to set the captives free. If Jesus Christ lives in us we will have that same Spirit that was in Jesus . It is more blessed to give than to receive. If we start giving freely and living for others then we ourselves will be satisfied. We will have the peace of Christ in us and we will want nothing because Jesus will fulfill us.
It is more blessed to give unselfishly, of ourselves, not just money but to give to this world what we have received from Jesus Christ. Jesus said:"Give and it will be given to you. With the same measure that you give it will be given to you also." We must unselfishly give of ourselves also without expecting anything in return and we will be blessed by God.
May Jesus bless you.
