A Few Words on Sharing

3 Jan

Happy New Year!!

Please let me share the devotional notes I made when I was doing devo with my fiancée today.

It’s based on our church’s daily digest and it is about sharing.

Philemon 1:4-6

SHARING
sharing is always good, that’s why sharing becomes one of the main commandments that Jesus gave to His disciple: to share the good news.

Sharing helps both of the parties at each end: it teaches the giver to give and it can be counted as a blessing to the receiver. As giver, we sometimes undermine the impact of sharing: the effect and after effect of sharing is beyond our knowledge – it surpasses what the eye can see, as it can affect people emotionally too – and usually, when they have experienced generous sharing from others, people would pay it forward.

My application:
I want to start sharing mindfully to others.

LOVE as our goal

3 Apr

Finished reading a devotional on 1 Timothy 1 and I am reminded that the goal of instructions, is, after all, Love:

…to love God and love others, with pure heart, clear conscience and sincere faith.”

It is not about knowing more so we can build up our fortress of knowledge so that we can answer every question asked, be it by others or the ones that our mind produces. Of course, knowing more about God and what He is saying ia vital, but, when it doesnt produce love, it doesn’t serve its purpose.

“Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up”
1 Cor 8:1
