Everything I accomplished demonstrated to you that we must support the weak with this sort of hard effort, recalling the words of the Lord Jesus himself: "It is more blessed to give than to receive."
Acts 20:35 says, "Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, as much as he can."
In other words, we should give back to God what he has given us. This is how you demonstrate your gratitude to him.
Your gratefulness will be reflected in your actions. The more thankful you are, the more good you will do. The more good you do, the more praise you will receive from God.
Psalm 115:13 says, "Those who love our Lord must obey his commands."
His command is that we should give back to him. If you want to receive blessings, you have to give blessings first. So start living by faith in God now, and see how it changes your life forever.
35. In all I did, I demonstrated to you that we must help the weak by hard effort, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus himself: "It is more blessed to give than to receive."
36. So let us learn from him how to live a giving life.
Jesus said: "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 what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with what measure you measure out, it will be measured back to you." (Luke 6:38-41)
He was not talking about giving money or things. He was talking about giving our time, energy, and attention to others. If we want to be blessed, we must share our blessings. That is why Jesus told his disciples to "be merciful as your Father is merciful". This means that we should show mercy to others just like God shows mercy to us.
God's way of blessing us is through other people. When we give ourselves away, we open up opportunities to give to others. And when we give to others, we can expect to receive back again. That is why Jesus said: "You will always have food to eat, clothes to wear, a home to stay in.
By what I've showed you, we must aid the weak by working hard. In this way, we recall the words of the Lord Jesus: "It is more blessed to give than to receive." "Be kind, sympathetic, and forgiving to one another, just as God has forgiven you in Christ." "So that, in fact, through your kindness, everyone will find forgiveness of sins.
The Bible says that we are to help our neighbors. We are to be their friends. They should feel comfortable coming to us with their problems. Then we should try to help them as best we can.
Jesus told us to "love our neighbors" (see Lev. 19:18). This command includes helping them when they need our help. There are times when people need money, and it's good to give it to them. But sometimes people want something else - attention or help with their problem - and giving them money won't make them happy. At those times, it's better to refer them to someone who can help them.
In conclusion, we should help our neighbors by being their friend. And we should do so by giving them advice and assistance when needed.
2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (KJV) Each of you should give what you have chosen in your heart to offer, not what you feel compelled to give, since God loves a joyful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that you will abound in every good deed in all things at all times, having all you need.
The New King James Version simplifies the language a bit. It says that we are to give cheerfully from the heart, not out of compulsion or fear. It also says that we are to give as we have decided in our hearts, not by how much money we have or don't have. Finally, it says that God is able to make us more than enough money to meet all of our needs.
This passage tells us to give without feeling obligated to give more than we have decided to give. It also tells us to give cheerfully and from the heart. Finally, it tells us that God is able to make us more than enough money to meet all of our needs. This last part isn't exactly something that we can rely on like the other parts but it does show that God wants us to live a happy healthy life even when we have plenty of money. He doesn't want us to be obsessed with material things and he has given us everything we need to meet all of our physical needs.

Whatever you do, do it with zeal, as though for the Lord rather than for mankind, knowing that the inheritance will be given to you as a recompense from the Lord. You are working for the Lord Jesus Christ. Your servant will be the greatest among you. Whoever delivers blessing will be blessed, and whoever waters will be watered. My father has many slaves who love me and whom I love. I give my life as a ransom for many. May they all be saved.
This is what the Bible says about serving the Lord.
Whatever you do, do it with zeal for the Lord and not for mankind, knowing that the inheritance will be given to you as a reward from the Lord. "You serve the Lord Jesus Christ." - Colossians 3:23-24.
In the Old Testament, people were rewarded for their efforts in farming and in business. A person who worked hard would naturally expect to receive some kind of reward for his or her effort. But not everyone who works hard will receive a reward. The Bible reveals that God determines what shape our lives will take after we die. It is up to him whether or not we get rewarded for our efforts here on earth.
People often wonder why some people are rich and others poor. Sometimes it is because of luck; something extra good or bad happened to some people. But most of the time it is because those who have more get more because they deserve it. If you want to be rich you must believe that you deserve to be rich and work hard to make yourself even more deserving.
There is no such thing as luck; everything that happens at any level from the biggest city to a single grain of sand is part of a plan that has been laid out by God before the beginning of time. He decides how things will turn out and uses whatever means necessary to bring about these ends.
