It is More Blessed To Give Than To Receive (Acts 20:33-35)

Phillip Stuckey, May 2, 2021
Part of the Paradoxes of the Bible series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

We have heard it said that “God works in mysterious ways.” Such is certainly the case when we consider the paradox of Jesus’ words that “it is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35). How can this be true? Whatever we give up, we lose any benefit we might have had. Whenever we receive something from someone else, we gain some benefit. Let’s take a moment to consider how we can be more blessed to give than to receive.

Acts 20:33–35 (Listen)

33 I coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel. 34 You yourselves know that these hands ministered to my necessities and to those who were with me. 35 In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
