RECEIVE GOD'S LOVE SO THAT YOU CAN IN TURN
The purpose for life here on earth
is to give and receive Love. God's Love is perfect so that which He gives contains no
flaws. His Love is not tainted with jealousy, faultfinding, or favoritism.
When we show acts of Love to others
it is God showing them His Love through us. God chooses the manner in which Love is given.

generosity. Surely God knew that this family would have a need and that you would be the
one to fill it.
In giving more Love to others we
receive more Love from God.

Acts 20:35 - I showed you in all
things that you should work as I did and help the weak. I taught you to remember the words
Jesus said: "It is more blessed to give than to receive."
Prayer: Dear Father help me to give
to those who are hungry for Love and Truth. Amen.
