    I am very blessed with this verse and I have learnt something.Giving is a source of blessings
  • Lilian
    It is very important and be blessed for us to give than to receive. Without thanksgiving to God we will not receive his blessing. This is the commandment of the Lord that needs to be obeyed."Love One Another as God loves us" Obedience to God's words are more important than prayers. Thanks to the blood of Jesus that shed for us. His blood is more than enough to give us life. Trust in God and keep thanking and praising him for he is worthy to be praised. There is no other Jehovah its only Jesus our life, our Savior and our Peace. Amen
