Giving not getting is the way to live:
Luke 6:38 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.
How to live:
1 Corinthians 16:14 MSG Keep your eyes open, hold tight to your convictions, give it all you’ve got, be resolute, and love without stopping.
Matthew 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
"Love, compassion, kindness…lets give those precious gifts this year, and ALL year for that matter, this Christmas. Let’s pray radical, bold prayers begging God to use us right where we are, to be His hands and feet to this hurting world. Let’s pray for obedience and hearts that break for what breaks His. Let’s join together as a community of Christian women and encourage each other to put the love God has given to us into action in our lives. And then lets move beyond the talking and praying and start the doing…intentionally sewing seeds of love in our communities." See more at: http://www.goodmorninggirls.org/2013/12/christmas-story-er/
"Love is a gift, and if we hand over a gift with one hand open while the other is closed, the gift is lost in exchange."
