VERNA’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL, FRIDAY, 05.07.19
2 CORINTHIANS 12:15
“And I will very gladly spend and be spent for your souls; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I am loved.”
SUCH A TRUTHFUL FINDING!
IT IS A TRUTH THAT OFTEN THE MORE ONE POURS INTO ANOTHER’S LIFE, THE LESS APPRECIATED THEY BECOME.
THIS IS WHAT PAUL IS SAYING.
YET HE STILL MAINTAINS THAT HE WOULD NOT HAVE DONE OTHERWISE.
HE HAS GIVEN AND GIVEN, ASKING NOTHING IN RETURN, YET HE IS OBVIOUSLY FEELING UNAPPRECIATED, AND AS THOUGH HE’S BEEN PLACED ON THE DEFENSIVE.
HOW OFTEN, AS PARENTS, WE MAY FEEL THIS WAY! OR WITH CLOSE FRIENDS, FAMILY, & ASSOCIATES. THE MORE WE GIVE OF OURSELVES, THE LESS APPRECIATED WE ARE. BUT IF THAT IS WHAT GOD HAS CALLED US TO, THAT IS SOMETIMES WHAT WE MUST DO (2 COR.5:15). ISN’T THAT WHAT JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA HA-MASHIACH HIMSELF EXPERIENCED?!
