With maturity should come the understanding that by giving we get blessed. In Acts we read, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'(Acts 20:35 NASU).
So is it really more blessed to give then to receive? If that’s the case then why do we spend so much time trying to figure out how to receive?
Jeremiah said, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it” Jeremiah 17:9 (KJV)?
Don’t let yourself be deceived into believing you are a giving person if you spend all your time trying to get more.
