“Better To Give Than Receive”

“Digging Deeper”
An opportunity for you to continue your study of God’s Word throughout the week.

FRIDAY
“Better To Give Than Receive”

1 John 4:12
“No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and His love is perfected in us.”

God is pure Spirit. This means that God is without a body or any material parts. Although there are many examples from Scripture that speak about God as having hands, eyes, or other bodily parts, these passages are not to be taken literally. Because God is pure spirit, no one has ever seen God. However, when we share the love God has given to us with others, love is perfected and He is on display because… God is Love. Love is completed when it is shared with someone else. As God pours His love into our lives, we shouldn’t just soak it up without sharing it with others. Agape love is shared.

THOUGHT: Loving people should be like holding a fire hose… not a vacuum.
