TOPIC: The Better Option
Read: Acts 20:32-35
32. And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
- I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel.
Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.
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.

Open Heaven For Teens 28 July 2022 Message
It’s good to receive blessings but better to be a blessing to others. A lot of Christians have an entitlement mentality that makes them assume they can get anything from anyone irrespective of whether they deserve it or not. Their prayers are centred on their desires and requests alone without bothering to pray for others who need miracles.
This is not a good attitude at all. Every child of God must think about others. This is why in the second commandment, Jesus said you should love others as yourself (Matthew 22:39 ).The four lepers in Samaria (2 Kings 7:3 ) hit a divine jackpot and had a field day in the enemys camp but they didnt stop there, they took the news to the Kings palace so that others could benefit too.
When God blesses you, He is watching to see whether you will share with others. The secret is, the more you share, the more you get but when you hoard the blessing, it doesnt multiply in your hands. A givers hand is always on top; choose the better option by being a giver henceforth so that your blessings will overflow.
Father, please deliver me from stinginess.
