What did Jesus mean? When he said“give freely what you receive freely?”
DonationsO What should you do when you receive a donation that is meant for an institution?O Should it be used by you at your house?O Should it be shared with others in need in your community?O Should it be sold and the money reverted to the institution’s bottom line?
ConceptsO What an institution receive is to be donated.O A worker that really needs it can take it.O The community that this center supports should be the major beneficiary of any goods received.O There should not be a habit that volunteers receive goods for themselves.O Items can be resold in the bazar so the funds can be utilized for the institutions needs.
How about Mediumnship?“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse thosewho have leprosy, drive out demons. Freelyyou have received; freely give.” Jesus – Mathew 10:8
Did you pay a university?O Did you sacrifice a number of years of your life to go to school in order to practice healing?O Did you spend innumerous dollars to attain this accreditation?O Did you spend hour studying?O Did anyone pay for you to attain this knowledge?
So should we pay?O When you go to a fortune teller?O When someone says that you need to do this because of bad luck or something?O When a prayer group will include you in their prayers?O Are they the ones that will grant you what you are looking for?
What is needed on a prayer? O Is a longer prayer better than a short one? O Can the spiritual world understand better if the prayer takes a greater amount of time to be said? O Can you buy GOD’s mind share to prioritize your problems? O Do we need to show our Faith?
What do we need?O Do we need to light candles?O Promisses?O Ribons?O Alcohol?O Black Chicken?O Risk our lives trying to place these in a complicated or even dangerous place?
With LoveO Don’t buy the Candle = Feed the poorO Donate your time to assist on charity work.O Land a hand to a friend.O Land a ear to a friend.O Be NICE with everyone all the time weather they are your people or those people O All the good we do reflects upon ourselves.
Who should be praying for us? O Ourselves. O “Watch and Pray” O Gospel at Home O Prayer at Meal time O Wake up Prayer O Turn Down Prayer O Many more prayers in the Gospel Chap 28.
What happens when we pay?O Do you think they will tell us: O What we need to hear? O What we want to hear?O Do you think they can feel: O What we want? O What we need?O Does our pride contribute for the success of their fortune telling?
If you must charge…O You must guarantee the results.O If you go to the store and purchase a refrigerator.O Install it at your house.O And it does not cool the food.O Do you? O Expect the vendor to exchange and make it right. O Say o well it was not mean to be….
Who is responsible for our problems?O We are. Each and everyone of us is responsible for our own problems and solutions.O What can help you succeed when you are in trouble?
Conclusion:O You have your own debt to repay.O God’s Design knows the extent of your debt.O If you deal directly with God, showing: O Interest in your moral transformation; O Faith; O Don’t miss out on your daily prayers; O Don’t miss out on the opportunity to help others; O “It is in giving that we receive” – Saint Francis of Assisi
