Bountiful Living Through Bountiful Giving
Excerpt From Sermon:
And why was he so loved? Because of the motto of his
life which is the: It is more blessed to give than receive.
Now, we make a living by what we get out of life. But we
make a life by what we give back to life. And Paul had learned

is more blessed to give than receive. And I dare say that human
nature tells you that is not true. Human nature tells you that
is not true. That it is more blessed to give than to receive.
But may I tell you these are the words of Jesus Christ and we

Giving. Not my philosophy of life, not really even Paul's.
Just one that Paul had adopted. Really, the philosophy of the
Lord Jesus Christ.
