GIVE OF YOURSELF
“I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
Acts 20:35 KJV
When we want to give people gifts but don’t have the money to buy gifts, we can give of ourselves. If you want to buy your spouse or children a special gift just because you love them, give of yourself. Isn’t that what Jesus did for us? He gave Himself when He allowed them to crucify Him for our sins.
Think how happy it would make your spouse and children if you told them you loved them and then shut off the television and spent time with them. A dad and son watched a football game for hours on television and never said one word to each other the entire time. How sad. What a waste of time.
Heavenly Father, help us to give time to one another and to be encouragers especially to our spouses and children. May others always see and hear to love of Jesus for them in my actions and in my words. I love You, Heavenly Father. I love You, Jesus. I love You, Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
