“Giver Of Victory” By Kirk Hunt
I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Acts 20: 35 NKJV
It is my privilege to be a platelet donor. To be a giver, I must endure pin pricks, needle stabs and intrusive questions. Still, I get to literally share my good health with others.
Treatment with platelets is a serious business. Serious burn victims receive platelets. Cancer patients receive platelets. Organ transplant patients receive platelets. “I will stay on this end of the donation, thank you.”
My platelets are a gift to those who receive them. They are fighting for their lives. I pray my small contribution is just what they need to win the battle.
You have a gift, given from God. It is precious and life-giving to those who receive it. Do you give it?
There may be some inconvenience in the giving. You may be a little drained after the donation. They are fighting for health, restoration or even just hope. Your contribution may be just what they need to win the battle.
There are epic battles being fought around you. Far too often the stakes are greater, and more eternal, than a beating heart. It may not be the literal blood from your veins, but you can spare something they need. I pray your contribution is just what they need to win the battle.
Think: I really am more blessed to give than to receive.
Pray: “Father-God, I thank You for every opportunity to be a giver.”
