Live with an Eternal Perspective Today's Scripture It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35, NIV. Today's Word from Joel and Victoria So much of our culture is inward focused. People are conditioned to think, Whats in it for me? But the most rewarding way to live is not with the attitude, How can I get blessed today? No, if we are always self-focused wondering how we can benefit, thats living with a shallow, temporary mentality.
