It is more blessed to give than to receive – Acts 20:35.
It takes the wisdom from God to know that we go through seasons of discomfort for the benefit of others in the long run, there’s a Scripture that tells us that when we are comforted, we are able to comfort others (2 Corinthians 1:4). We also know that our light affliction works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory (2 Corinthians 4:17), this eternal weight of glory is the impact that your struggle will have on others when they too go through things and in turn them too will help others. I personally believe it is a lot easier to help someone to go through something that I myself have first gone through.
The words of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Scripture above tells us that it’s more blessed to give than to receive, so how blessed are we when we are there to help people and to give a solution? The blessing in what we go through is the ability to be able to help others when they too are going through discomfort. These things create a far greater impact than the comfort that we desire.
“So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever,” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 MSG.
