The Devotional on Dec. 23, 2013 was titled Learn to receive and the scripture along with it is below.
I will bless you with abundant increase of favors and you will be a blessing dispensing good to others. Genesis 12:2
Joyce Meyers goes on to talk about Learning to receive below
“Nothing frustrates me more than people who don’t know how to accept gifts. It’s a joy to express my love or appreciation to someone by giving them a gift I know they will like.” The greatest gift that can be given is offered to each of us every day,yet few of us have the faith and the self-esteem to accept it. God offers us his love all we have to do is open our hearts and make the decision to receive it. Then we in turn get to pass it on to others. receiving Gods love is an important step because we can’t love others with out it we cannot give away what we do not have.”
It took me a while to learn that people don’t always want something in return they just want to show you how you have impacted their life in some form or other. If you are learning to receive why not make a vow for the year of 2014 to learn to receive more of what God wants to give though others?…..
