GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER
(Scripture Reflection Acts 20:35)

"It is more blessed to give than to receive"

Giving is not putting money in the Offertory plate or making donations to charitable agencies. Paul who supported himself by making tents advises... we must support the weak. Giving is beyond what money can do. giving is also using our own time selflessly to visit an old age home or orphanage, or making an effort to help the needy or at least listen to their tales of woe.

Giving also means spending quality time with parents or children or spouse and sometimes our next door neighbour who lives alone.
All this self-giving flows from our setting aside time with our Lord, who inspires us and leads us to those most in need. Christ demonstrates this in the Gospel when He prays to the Father for His disciples and thanks Him for them.
