NEW Pastor’s Blog for week of November 5, 2017
Dear Ohana (Family),
Jesus said, “…it is MORE blessed to give than to receive”
When we receive something, we normally say “We are blessed”. But, we are MORE blessed when we give. That’s why we celebrate ThanksGIVING! In other words, I’m thankful that I “get to” give, not I “have to give”. In other words, God gives us the ability to give, but we choose the attitude by which we give.
It’s okay to want to receive. However, when we do receive, we should receive with a grateful heart. Then, when we give, we don’t give with our hands…we give from a grateful heart. This is how God continues to give to us. He gives from His heart.
This Holiday Season, let’s make sure we give to God the measure of gratitude He deserves…because of the measure of blessings we have already received.
This Wednesday night Service - come hear and experience our “lightning” speaker HELEN LAUVAO, as she shares her message – “CHURCH SHIFT”! Plus, our Hula Ministry will be performing! Don’t miss it! THEN…
