Days of Heaven Upon Earth

Devotional For

March 7



      "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts xx. 35).
      
      How shall we know the difference between the earthly and the heavenly love? The one terminates on ourselves and is partly ourself seeking its own gratification. The other reaches out to God and others, and finds its joy in glorifying Him and blessing them. Love is unselfishness, and the love that is not unselfish is not divine. How much do we pray for others, and how much for ourselves? What is the center of our being? Ourselves, or our Lord and His people and work? The Lord help us to know more fully the meaning of that great truth, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." "He that saveth his life shall lose it, and he that loseth his life for My sake and the Gospel, shall keep it unto life eternal."
      
      Have you found some precious treasure,
          Pass it on.
      Have You found some holy pleasure,
          Pass it on.
      Giving out is twice possessing,
      Love will double every blessing,
      On to higher service pressing,
          Pass it on.
