Giving and Receiving

Scripture reading

Give and it will be given to you. A good measure pressed down, shaken together and running over will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

–Luke 6:38

Thought of the Day

Billy Graham has done so much to further the cause for Christ in the world today with his preaching and books and positive influence. As we rapidly approach Christmas and a time of much giving and receiving, I thought you might need to read some words from Dr. Graham.

God gives us two hands, one to receive with and one to give with. We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for sharing.

You have probably never heard this before, but be a channel not a cistern.


Lord, Teach me to give and also to receive, especially the gift of Your Son, Jesus the Christ. Amen.
