It’s All About Giving!

The word “give” appears 1464  time in the New American Standard Version of the Bible.

The word “gave,” 505 times.

From Genesis 1:14 where God gave light to our world, to Revelation 21:6

Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.,

the Scriptures are about giving.

We are encouraged to give:

Thankful gratitude.

Tithes.

Prayers

Encouragement.

Love.

God gives to us:

Life.

Love.

Caring.

And ultimately, the greatest sacrifice of all.

For God so loved the world that He gave his only son.

And you know what amazes me?  It was all for us.

Every single gift that was and is and continues to be given.

All for us.

It’s mind boggling when to start to think about it.

For you

and for me.

All was given so that we might have the best gift of them all.

A forever life with Him.

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. James 1:17

Have a Christ-filled Christmas, my friends!

Things are beginning to gel for a Hinds Feet book study.  Please let me know if you are interested!  Simply shoot me an email or leave a comment on the site.  If you are interested in the study, but cannot afford the book, let me know that as well.  Also, Amazon has some good prices on used books.  :)

Update:

It is looking as if the study will happen!  The format isn’t written in stone yet, but it will either be a private discussion link on this site or in a chatroom.  So, if you want to participate, find your books and be ready to go, probably mid-January!
